What got us started?
We both being interested in the visual Arts, after we got married, we quite often used to discuss about Art and ideas and also make them. We felt like designing those ideas into products since we felt more people would be interested in the things we liked making. That's how we started! :)
All the products on our website are designed by us.
Btw here's a page from card Chaitanya proposed Rucha with which he had illustrated. We are actually living it ! :)
