I started the company in 1974 with a simple mission of “bringing nature indoors”. Indian dried botanicals found instant international acceptance and mass appeal as they elevated any style of home décor through the earth’s natural goodness. I retired from business in 2012, and now focus all my time, energy and effort on philanthropic pursuits. I remain the company’s “mentor”.
I am the company’s de-facto “problem-solver” and oversee strategy, sales, marketing, supply chain management and people management. I travel around the globe to gauge our customers’ diverse preferences and ensure our product evolves accordingly.
I am responsible for factory management and focus on planning and execution of orders, product quality inspections, and customer correspondence. I have the pleasure of interacting with and learning from the people who bring our product to life: our exceptional workforce.
