Mayura’s entrepreneurial journey is largely shaped by the people she met and the adventures she had a decade of living in the US and other countries. Her alma mater, Purdue, provided her with a great starting platform to meet with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds - students who are or aspire to be change-makers and responsible citizens of the world. During her time at Purdue, she had the opportunity to study and work abroad in China, Germany and the US through her coursework and internship programs. she THEN COMPLETED THE SUMMER INSTITUTE OF General Management AT Stanford University. she THEN joined Gulfstream Aerospace’s flagship private jet manufacturing facility AS A MANUFACTURING AND PROJECT ENGINEER.
DURING HER TIME AT BABSON COLLEGE FOR GRADUATE STUDIES IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND MANAGEMENT, she went on a trip to Iceland with friends WHERE SHE DISCOVERED THE 5000 YEAR OLD TRADITION OF TURNING DISCARDED FISH SKINS INTO BEAUTIFUL AND DURABLE LEATHER. THAT'S WHEN THE IDEA FOR M A Y U WAS CONCEIVED.
Founder and Creative Head, Mayura is in pursuit of broadening horizons through sustainable social change. Born and raised in India, she has grown up watching her father build and grow multiple successful businesses, all while maintaining the virtue of being kind.
“I am taking the stories behind the craft, culture, tradition, artisans and weaving them into the story of my own life — taking it forward as a legacy that deserves to be continued”, SHE SAYS.
Mayura’s personal style is rooted in classic and simple designs, a trait that has informed the design philosophy of M A Y U. Self-described as a modern woman with a traditional core, she is an avid traveler with a passion for art, design, culture, entrepreneurship, and social good. This is why M A Y U is more than just a brand — it’s the start of something that has been cultivating within Mayura’s spirit over the course of her life.
