Pebbles is an exclusively handcrafted shoe brand that offers vibrant yet classy designs that are unique in their appeal.
Each and every pair of shoes that we make at Pebbles, are handcrafted from scratch. The process starts from making the shoes, followed by painting them according to the design. The shoes are designed keeping in mind the fact that these will be used on a daily basis. Therefore, art is blended with subtlety to make them equal parts attractive and functional. The customer's comfort is always of utmost important at Pebbles. Each Pebbles' pair tells a story with the help of unique designs and colours that surely steal the show!
The journey so far…
Combining my passion for painting and the knowledge of marketing, which I had attained from my MBA degree, I started Pebbles while still in college! Looking at the immense response I received during the initial phase, I decide to take the brand ahead. There has been no looking back since then!
Always a supportive figure in my life, my father, Mr. B. S. Chaudhry, joined my venture post his retirement from his business. He is also a very creative person and that fact came handy during his second innings! He handles the operations at Pebbles. Saniya Husain and Megha Gole are from my MBA college. We gradually became co-workers apart from being friends as well. They help me build Pebbles' brand image through photography and content writing.
The unique business model
After I started Pebbles while still in college, I gradually realized that my brand can provide a platform to emerging entrepreneurs studying in college to work with us and build their leadership skills. Combining education with practical application had helped me grow as a student. Hence, at Pebbles, we provide full freedom to students who collaborate with us, so that they can get first-hand experience in marketing and sales.
I have brought Pebbles together with my own savings and fortunately, we have been able to survive with the profits that we make. Pebbles is a creative brand with a unique business model. We don't want somebody else to drive our business model with only profits in mind. We don't want to compromise on our art and creativity for anything. Hence, crowdfunding is the apt platform to generate funds and thereby expand Pebbles.
