Hi everyone! We are Aiyappa Somayanda & Madhavi Das - two crazy people trying to bring about sustainable change in a space that is rapidly moving toward unsustainability.
At a time where the craze is Fast Fashion - low prices, no emphasis on quality, discarding clothes frequently and staying”on trend” - we see the need to shift in the other direction, and fast.
In a world running out of space and resources, we should be buying high-quality clothes that last long and remain timeless in style, while also ensuring that the materials used to make them are not destroying our planet.
This is what we aim to do with Bamboo Tribe. Produce high-quality, well-tailored, wardrobe staples, made from buttery-soft Bamboo fabric, better for you and the environment. [ Find out why here. ]
With each Bamboo Tribe Original that you add to your wardrobe, you’re making a statement that quality matters, wastefulness is passe and you won’t buy just anything that big corporations say you need to have.
Join us. Be the change. Switch to Bamboo.
Madhavi is a graduate of IIM Kozhikode, who spent a decade in the corporate world, as a VP at HSBC, Sales Head at Xiaomi and E-Commerce Director at LeEco, before giving up the pay and stability to do something close to her heart.
Loves: Her dogs, music and travelling to quiet places.
Aiyappa worked in consulting after he graduated from IIM Trichy, and then in sales at Xiaomi & LeEco, where the initial idea for Bamboo Tribe took shape, until he was ready to take the leap and chase his dream.
Loves: Football, all things DC and taking lots of naps.
