Meet the entrepreneurs behind Impia and her labels;
Shashank Kanoria was born in West Bengal, India. From a young age he dealt with farms where Jute & Cotton was grown. Shashank’s grandfather owned a jute mill. Here the jute from the land was made into fibers so that they could be sold to the textile industry. These Natural fibers would then be used in a variety of finished products such as bags, garments, industrial use etc.
After studying Economics & Finance in England, Shashank moved to Amsterdam to work in a Trading company active in the financial market. During his time in Netherlands, Shashank saw the opportunities that existed for businesses and consumers by getting there products directly from manufacturers in India. As well, the benefits to small & medium manufacturers in India to have a readily available export market would be immense.
Now Shashank functions as the bridge between India and Europe to translate the needs of our clients and possibilities within our manufacturing units. As the Operations Manager Europe, Shashank makes sure that what we promise to our clients, comes to life.
