I know you will want to get up and dance to this music but please only after you finish reading this post Great choice Ramona definitely a refreshing change for the blog.
Forty Red Bangles refers to the wedding chura which is traditionally worn by brides for 40 days after their marriage. “For me it signified a turning point in my life and hence became the name of my business. Now we refer to it as the ‘marriage’ of sustainability and design.” Says Ramona Saboo the lovely Founder and Director of Forty Red Bangles
“Forty Red Bangles was launched in 2010 out of my need and desire to forge my own connection with Mumbai and India in a meaningful and productive way. When my daughter turned 3, I decided I wanted to channel my energy into something positive and get back to work. I drew upon my experience and background in community development and decided to set up a social enterprise . Drawing inspiration from everyday life in India I created designs which have been translated into sustainable luxury lifestyle products . I worked at the grassroots level and outsourced elements of our production to ensure that the artisans involved earn an ongoing income. Through my work I have developed my very own connection with each place I have lived in. “

Forty Red Bangles have their our own online platform and also retail across India in different cities. They are available in Singapore at Tangs Orchard Road and also participate in a prominent trade show called The Boutiques Fair in March and November in Singapore.
“I feel that in India it would be really nice to have a more supportive and active community for mompreneurs. I see many women focused initiatives in other countries where people like myself can really benefit from being surrounded by like minded people. Sometimes having your own business and working for yourself can be a lonely journey, so having a more active online or offline space would be fantastic.”
” I am a big foodie and will travel to any part of the city to try out new food.I enjoy preparing meals for my family and have secret ambitions to one day be on Masterchef Australia.”
Ramona we are sure your food is as delicious and good looking as the clothes you make so good luck for the Masterchef’s next season 😉 Life of an entrepreneur is never easy and for mompreneurs even more so. The journey is tough but its worth enjoying each moment of it because each experience is a great teacher.
