Dare to believe that good things are possible when you follow your heart - Archana Ganapathy Poonacha lives and breathes these words. She does not say so, but she lives and acts so. PINKAPPLE – a space design, product innovation, and design service studio – is her brain child and a fine example of her belief in following ones’ heart.
It was just another day in 2008 when Archana, who was 6 months into expecting her first child, decided to take a few minutes to seriously think about something she had been seeing as a need in the market. With a successful career in fashion houses, such as United Colors of Benetton, Levis, and Wrangler, Archana had little to worry about a job when she returned from her maternity leave. But that thought was far from what Archana had in mind. She was building on the solution she had identified for the need in the market. With a humble seed capital of Rs.25000, which was given to her by her husband to start a business, Archana decided to register her company PINKAPPLE, get a rubber stamp and make 4 quilts for a client. That is how the journey of Archana, a design studio entrepreneur, started.
The first order, as a vendor, to design a model apartment for Purvankara Builders with focus on product interiors not only shot up the sales for Purvankara but also set a pace for PINKAPPLE to never look back. The ride has not been free of bumps on many fronts, however, Archana’s determination, expertise in design, and belief in doing good and honest work has always paved the way forward for PINKAPPLE.
