SOMETIMES ALL IT TAKES IS COMMON SENSE…
It all started with a simple idea. Eco-friendly products can be tastefully designed, easy to maintain and yet be affordable. The idea evolved into an experiment. The experiment evolved into a business. The business evolved into a community of eco-conscious citizens.
Some guiding principles continue to drive our success. Maintain honest pricing of eco-friendly products and people will buy them. Make the products easy to maintain and people will cherish them. Form a community to make a small difference without being preachy and people will join in. Support rural artisans and NGOs and the local crafts will continue to flourish. Become a platform that celebrates creativity and even the less eco-conscious will become customers….

After completing her Bachelor of Science in Visual Communications in 1999, Urvashi joined Mudra Communications as a Trainee where she assisted the Creative Art Director. She later launched Ideas Incorporated which distributed handmade paper stationery to leading lifestyle across Chennai. She went on to relaunch Ideas Incorporated in Mumbai (in 2003) and subsequently Eco Corner (in 2006) with Amish Mody and has been running the day-to-day operations of both businesses since then. Urvashi is deeply committed to sustainable lifestyles and ecological responsibility and believes deeply that these can actually spur great design rather than limit or impede it.
Amish graduated with a BE (Electronics) degree from Mumbai University. Even as an Engineering student, he conceptualised and managed Cyberciti (which was then Compaq’s flagship store in India) between November, 1997- March 2002. In his various assignments, he has accumulated over 10 years of experience in the Print Media industry including as Managing Editor –Mumbai of Cross Section Publications which was then a leading publisher of Travel-Trade magazines. In his most recent assignment as National Sales & Marketing Manager of Club Med in India, Amish was responsible for the commercial operations of Club Med in India. While Amish always had the option of entering the family business, his ambitions needed a broader canvas to play out against. He found it in Urvashi's vision of a design lead, eco-friendly business.
