On the occasion of Mother’s Day, we are talking about these mother-daughter duos doing business together for a long time in several parts of India.
Long gone are the days when one would scarcely find mothers and daughters running businesses together. However, with the changing times, nowadays, we often come across mother-daughter duos doing business, along with being the pillar of support for each other. Here’s another effort to bring to light a few such businesses!
1. Ae Ri Sakhi
Hailing from Vadodara, Jayati Dave and her mother Hema Dave became entrepreneurs during the first wave of COVID-19 lockdown. Their idea is not only creative but also eco-friendly as the duo makes ethnic and modern jewellery out of waste materials like cardboard packaging material, and other waste fabric found at home!
2. Tharangini Studios
The Bengaluru-based brand, popular for creating organic hand block printed fabrics, is run by Lakshmi Srivathsa and her daughter Padmini Govind, who left her job in the US to run the business with her mother. Started in the 1980s by selling silk saris, the brand also exports fabrics for home furnishings in the current times!
3. Floral Art By Shrishti
Shrishti Kapur, the mother of Kavita Kapur, had turned her passion for creating floral jewellery and decor into a full-fledged business with her daughter in the year 2002. Now, the brand is one of the most popular names in Mumbai for all kinds of floral needs! Recently, B’Town star Alia Bhat was also seen wearing the brand at one of her wedding ceremonies!
4. The Chhaunk
Delhi-based Manjari Singh and her mother-in-law Hiranyamayi Shivani had started a cloud kitchen out of their love for the Bihari delicacies when they could not go to their hometown due to the second wave. And currently, the kitchen serves one of the best Champaran mutton, Litti-Chokha, Sattu ki kachori, Sattu sharbat, Dal Puri with Kheer, Pulav, and much more!
5. Imperial Sweet House
One of the most popular sweet dishes in Hyderabad – Badam Ki Jali served at the Imperial Sweet House is to die for. We are not saying this, but people don’t leave a chance to mention the name! The brand was started by Nafees and her daughter-in-law Nasreen Hussaini in the 1960s and is still running with pride, and they have even touched the international borders!
