Aamvi: Here comes a brand that embraces Indian values and aesthetics to celebrate contemporary fashion

“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it.” ~ Edith Head

The right outfit, just as the right attitude, can make all the difference. The clothes adorning your body aren’t merely a reflection of your fashion choices but also serve as an effective medium of self-expression. Thanks to the efforts of a few emerging startups, today’s generation is able to connect with India’s rich legacy of handcrafted clothing. They’re willing to explore and experiment more.

Launched in 2019 by Meghavi, Aamvi offers the best of chic Indian clothing, created with love and devotion by the skilled artisans of India. Since Meghavi was a part of the UN cohort for women empowerment, she’s aware of her responsibility not just as an entrepreneur but also as a woman. Hence, through Aamvi the feisty 24-year-old strives to train and uplift women artisans, thus enabling them to create a brighter future for themselves.

Stairway to Success 


Meghavi’s entrepreneurial journey began when she was still in the final year of college, studying to be a fashion communication graduate. As part of the curriculum, she visited the craftsmen in Telangana and interacted with the local artisans there. This marked a drastic shift in the way she began to perceive fashion and clothes. She was bowled over by the amazing craftsmanship and unwavering dedication of such unsung heroes of Indian weaves.

Meghavi personally preferred bohemian fashion but experimented with her fashion choices. In an attempt to explore her creative potential, she set out to make her own collection, wearing them to college and drawing admiration from a lot of people. At a time when most of her college mates were gushing over high-end brands like Zara, Meghavi made heads turn with her ethically sustainable clothes that were at par with foreign brands in terms of style, quality and aesthetics. The positive response garnered from all quarters encouraged Meghavi to establish her dream venture, Aamvi. And, there has been no looking back ever since.

Aamvi : In honor of women, Indian values and art 


Aamvi presents a unique collection of modern, easy-breezy outfits that celebrate the flair and finesse of Indian handloom and crafts while holding on to the style quotient of current times. Since sustainable measures are adopted, there’s zero wastage and no harm caused to the environment. The designs, hand printed by expert artisans, are fun, unique and versatile. 

Aamvi busts the myth that if it’s handprinted, it’s boring. These clothes captivate the sensibilities of the younger generation who are fascinated by the enduring appeal of traditional art, handed down over several generations. 

Take a look at some of the trendy chic dresses and cotton shirts (bushirts) which are high on comfort and style. The Jugalbandi collection boasts of hand block-printed apparels while its Kamala backless dress and Avisa shirt are a crowd-favorite.

Aamvi clothes are designed in a way that allows you to style the garments in many different ways, thus giving wings to your creative expression. Orders can be placed online on Aamvi’s Instagram page. Owing to worldwide shipping, customers can opt for offline orders too and because of this option, the brand has a diverse clientele from across the globe. With more than 500 offline orders and many products going out-of-stock within hours of availability, the brand is turning out to be a favorite with fashion lovers worldwide.

What’s in store for the future?


There’s no denying that Aamvi has got off to a dream start. So now, what’s next? Meghavi responds “I see myself opening offline stores and building a team of young people with a keen sense of fashion.” Furthermore, the brand intends to experiment with new sustainable materials other than cotton. They also aim to empower artisans as the brand grows and build a women empowered team. There’s a lot to explore and a lot to learn for Aamvi. The journey has only just begun.

There’s a thoughtful reason behind the name of the brand:  

“KIHAN means ‘Universe’ and in Japanese KIHAN means ‘bond/connection’. That’s the reason we are building ‘Kihan- The Universe of eco-essentials’ through which we are trying to “bond or connect” with nature.” Says the founder of Kihan India.

Addressing Pain Points and Challenges:  

As a startup, Kihan has faced its fair share of challenges, including initial investment constraints and the need to establish a robust online presence.

    However, with perseverance and dedication, the founders overcame these obstacles and launched their brand with an investment of 10,000-12,000 rupees.

  By leveraging platforms like WhatsApp, Swiggy, Instamart, and Instagram, they initially reached customers directly but later expanded to include a dedicated website to streamline the purchasing process and enhance customer experience.

    Despite these challenges, Kihan has garnered a loyal customer base, particularly in the US, where customers appreciate the brand’s commitment to sustainability and craftsmanship.  

Vision for the Future:  

Looking ahead, Kihan aims to further expand its product offerings and establish a stronger presence both domestically and internationally.

Celebrate life’s beautiful memories with gifts from Celebrations & More

Gifting is an emotion. There are times when people are happy but they don’t know how to express their feelings. They are clueless about the gifts they want, whether it’s for a wedding, or surprising your friend on his/her birthday.

In order to help them cope with this problem, the sister duo of Pragati Agarwal and Shruti Jindal created Celebrations & More in November 2014.

The brand understands the needs, requirements, and emotions of the clients to curate a perfect gift /plan which they will remember for lifetime. Because with Celebrations & More, you are not just curating gifts but creating enduring memories.

All about the startup

Celebrations & More is a designer gifting boutique providing unique and best gifting solutions for all your occasions. Co-founder Pragati explains further “We offer bespoke luxury gifting service. We call ourselves a gift stylist,  as we customize gifts/hampers as per our clients requirements.” Here you’ll get gifts across a huge variety of categories such as wedding favors, wedding trousseau packing, occasional gifting such as birthdays, anniversaries, house warming, baby shower, baby announcements, festive as well as corporate gifting.

There’s an all together separate section of luxury gifting – which mainly contains premium home decor platters, German silverwares and beautiful artifacts and handcrafted masterpieces.

What makes the brand stand out is its focus on the detailed curation of each and every hamper. Pragati and Shruti use their expertise and creativity to transform their client’s emotions into a gift which directly expresses their feelings.

The founders maintain absolute transparency and empathy while designing gifts for the client. Shruti adds “Because we believe , if we cannot understand our client’s emotions, we will not be able to deliver the product they are looking for.”

Here, at Celebrations & More, the buzzword is innovation. The startup keeps updating and innovating its  products creatively, so every time clients walk into the store, they get to see new designs on the shelf. And probably that’s the best way to beat competition.

The startup ships worldwide, with clients from  all over India, New York , Singapore and Dubai who keep coming back to us as loyal customers.

How it all began

Not all big things start with a big plan. Sometimes, your passion and inner drive are enough to set you on the right path. Such was the case with the founders of Celebrations & More. As Pragati points out “It was never a planned startup. Creativity was in my blood and curating gifts was my passion. I never realized when my passion turned into a profession.”

When the siblings realized how much people liked their work and wanted more of such products, they officially started Celebrations & More, with an aim to provide a better , well planned gifting experience for people.

Being full time homemakers come with its own set of challenges. Both Pragati and Shruti embraced the challenge. They went ahead with an amateur and unprofessional approach through which they could directly and emotionally connect with their clients which soon became a usp of the brand’s service. We still have very fond bonding with our clients as we connect with them emotionally. We are now like a big celebration family.

What lies ahead?

The company has grown from strength to strength since the time of its inception. Having delivered more than 50k hampers so far and with more than 800 regular clients in our datasheet (excluding online and international clients), Celebrations & More has garnered love and appreciation from clients worldwide.

Besides aiming for a humongous turnover, Pragati wants to give Celebrations & More a nation wide recognition by making it a franchise model. The plan is to open outlets in different cities with the objective of providing an exceptional gifting experience to people.

Social media is the key

Through her YouTube channel, Pragati wants to help aspiring women who want to take bespoke gifting as a profession. There would be free workshops and classes, so that they can excel and make a living of their own.

Shruti talks about the time when she realized the power of Instagram. “In October 2023 one of our reels got viral. We had more than 1m views in just 2 days, and people went mad over a particular design. We sold almost 500+ pieces of that product till the time we were out of stock.” People showered love from around the globe and that gave a new perspective to the business approach. The focus now is on the target audience online.

Tiber Taber: A journey from friendship to fashion.

In the ever-evolving landscape of fashion start ups, there exists a gem that goes beyond creating garments – it crafts stories for the little ones. Tiber Taber, founded in January 2014 by the dynamic duo of Dimpali Khattar and Ridhima, is not merely a children’s clothing brand; it is an embodiment of cultural pride, comfort, and sustainability. The roots of this venture trace back to a college project. And it planted the seeds of entrepreneurship in the fertile soil of friendship.

A Journey from Friendship to Entrepreneurship:

The story of Tiber Taber begins with the camaraderie between Dimpali and Ridhima, who transitioned seamlessly from being best friends in college to becoming business partners. Fresh out of their academic journey, the two friends embarked on a mission to redefine the landscape of children’s fashion. Their eyes were opened during a college project that highlighted the uncharted territory within the kid’s wear market. This realization sparked the idea that would soon blossom into Tiber Taber.

The entrepreneurial journey kicked off in January 2014, with Dimpali at the age of 22 and Ridhima at 24. The initial investment of ₹750,000, pooled together by both founders, became the catalyst for a venture that would redefine the way parents approached dressing their little ones.

Crafting Comfort and Cultural Connection:

Tiber Taber’s distinctiveness is deeply rooted in its commitment to two fundamental principles – comfort and cultural connection. The co-founders observed a significant gap in the kid’s wear market where traditional Indian clothing often sacrificed comfort for aesthetics. Polyester, the prevalent material in the market, was equated to a plastic bag – an unsettling choice for delicate newborns.

This realization sparked a revolution in the way Tiber Taber approached design and production. Every garment crafted by the brand is made from natural fabrics, ensuring unparalleled comfort for the little ones. But it’s not just about comfort; it’s about fostering a connection to India’s rich cultural heritage. Each design is a unique creation, reflecting a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity.

The pain point Tiber Taber addresses is evident – the discomfort experienced by children in traditional attire. The brand has become a solution for parents who seek not only elegant and culturally rich clothing for their kids but also prioritize their comfort. No longer confined to Western clothing during festivals and weddings, children can now revel in the beauty of their cultural roots without compromising on comfort.

Pioneering Sustainability in Kid’s Wear:

As Tiber Taber set out to redefine the landscape of children’s fashion, a crucial realisation dawned upon the founders – sustainability shouldn’t come at an exorbitant price. The brand’s initial avatar was that of a premium boutique brand with prices soaring above ₹5000. However, the vision shifted towards making sustainable fashion accessible to a broader audience.

The mission became clear – offer natural fabrics at affordable prices without compromising on quality. Tiber Taber emerged as a beacon of affordable elegance, making sustainable choices an integral part of everyday life. While the brand maintains its premium status, the cost of natural fabrics is justified by the comfort, style, and sustainability they bring to each garment.

Tiber Tabergoes beyond fashion – it weaves stories for the young ones. The journey, fueled by friendship and a shared vision, led Dimpali Khattar and Ridhima to embark on a mission to redefine children’s fashion. Tiber Taber becomes more than a brand; it becomes a commitment to cultural values, comfort, and sustainability. As the story navigates through the brand’s past, present, and future, it paints a vivid picture of a company scaling new heights while remaining deeply rooted in its mission. Tiber Taber, with its unique blend of tradition and modernity, emerges not just as a clothing brand but as a cultural curator for the little ones of the world.

Designers are experimenting with innovative cuts, fabrics, and embellishments to create contemporary ethnic wear that blends tradition with modern aesthetics. The rise of branded ethnic wear signifies a changing consumer mindset, where individuals seek not just stylish clothing but also a connection to their roots. 

Offering an array of fabric options in ready-to-wear, unstitched and semi-sticheddesigns to all ethnic dress lovers is a clothing brand “Klotho Designer Wear” that was launched in December 2019 by Purvikiran Kaur. A brand which has something unique for all is a huge hit amongst its clients and prospects for the abundant variety it offers.

With their commitment to providing the best value in the market, customers can indulge in premium quality fashion without breaking the bank.

Throwback To The Year 2019 When TheBrand was Launched 

Giving a glimpse of the entrepreneurial journey, Purvikiran shares “We started with a brick-and-mortar store in Mumbai with a 3000 square feet outlet in 2019, however with the pandemic creeping in by early 2020, we had to shut down the physical store and start online. Having shifted from Mumbai to Gurgaon, the essence was still being able to connect to Pan India customers and ship across even though it was in an online mode. Initially, it was a challenge getting connected and building trust with customers but with experience in digital marketing, the sailing got smoother and over time the brand had 50k+followers on Instagram.” The brand has happily served 10k+ customers and other than India has also reached international markets like Dubai, USA and Australia. With a promising monthly growth rate of 8-10%, the brand envisions being available on all major e-commerce platforms.

Best Passive Income Generating Ideas to Increase Your Income in 2024

With the best passive income generating ideas to earn money without working more. Here are tried-and-true passive income ideas to get started.

Passive income generating ideas refer to a revenue stream that demands minimal or no ongoing effort. It is a business model that is largely self-sustaining. Frequently, passive income ideas entail an initial investment that yields consistent long-term returns. Earning passive income may sound appealing, but it’s important to remember that it can take time for your investments to grow. 

11 Best Passive Income Ideas for Building Wealth

Explore these 11 passive income ideas to make extra money and secure your financial being. 

1. Start a dropshipping store

Dropshipping stands out as the best passive income generating idea, allowing you to earn money remotely, regardless of your initial capital.

In the dropshipping model, you establish an online store where customers can peruse and purchase various products. What makes dropshipping intriguing is that you aren’t required to handle or physically oversee the products you offer for sale.

2. Print-on-demand Store

Print-on-demand services can be a lucrative form of passive income for artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to monetize their creativity. This method entails working with suppliers to customize white-label products like t-shirts, posters, backpacks, or books and selling them on a per-order basis.

Similar to dropshipping, you only pay for the product once it is sold. There is no need to buy in bulk or keep inventory.

3. Run an affiliate marketing business

Affiliate marketing is one of the most effective methods of generating passive income. It involves promoting the products or services of others in exchange for commissions. Individuals share their affiliate links to facilitate sales on platforms such as social media, websites, and email newsletters.

The scalability of affiliate marketing is what differentiates it. They can consistently generate passive income with minimal ongoing effort after creating relevant content and establishing affiliate links. This route is extremely beneficial for monetizing their online presence and abilities. As your audience grows, so does the possibility of passive income.

4. Become a social media influencer

Becoming a social media influencer, capable of influencing others’ purchasing choices, entails building a community of individuals who share common interests.

An engaged audience can be used to support a variety of passive income streams. For example, collaborating with large as well as small companies to endorse their products among your followers can be lucrative. Creating and selling personalized merchandise is another way to earn money by leveraging your engaged audience.

5. Start a YouTube channel

Making passive income through the YouTube channel venture remains viable, given the colossal global user base of 2.7 billion monthly users. However, the initial phase demands substantial effort with minimal immediate returns.

However, if someone is willing to put in the time upfront and has a long-term vision, a successful YouTube channel can generate a sizable amount of passive income. Revenue streams including affiliate sales, sponsorships, branded integrations, and ad income can increase steadily as your audience, content, clicks, and views increase. Moreover, you can increase your revenue streams by venturing into podcasting, which may generate a passive income through sponsorships.

6. Invest in rental income

Investing in real estate and making passive income through earning rental income, especially through long-term rentals, is a dependable way to generate steady cash flow, especially in areas with strong rental markets. However, it involves sustained responsibilities such as property maintenance, handling multiple mortgages, addressing property tax obligations, and managing various expenses over time.

Investors have access to a variety of real estate investments through the platform, such as development projects, rental homes, and commercial real estate.

7. Peer-to-peer lending

Participating in peer-to-peer lending is a good passive income source that allows you to act as a lender, extending financial support to individuals or small businesses, much like a bank. You (as a peer) lend money to borrowers in this type of personal loan. Although it offers promising profit potential, it’s essential to acknowledge the inherent risks, such as the possibility of borrower defaults. Mitigating risks by diversifying loans among various borrowers can prove advantageous. Engaging in peer-to-peer lending requires thorough research for selecting loans prudently and ongoing monitoring. 

Despite its hands-on nature, this approach can yield a consistent way to earn passive income from regular borrower payments, making it an attractive option for individuals willing to commit to a more involved passive income strategy.

8. Create an Online Course

Curious about potential online businesses to start? Exploring lucrative online business ideas can be an excellent strategy for establishing a passive income stream.

Developing an online course presents a dynamic and fulfilling opportunity for passive income for individuals with expertise in a specific domain. Once established, the course can generate income through enrollment, necessitating periodic updates and participant support. Given the growing popularity of online learning, an online course has the potential to provide a consistent source of passive income without much investment while also allowing you to share your expertise with a larger audience.

9. Invest in the Stock Market

Investing in the stock market may appear intimidating due to its steep learning curve and complexity, but it remains an excellent way to build long-term wealth. 

The main goal of stock market investing is to diversify your portfolio and reduce risk. This is accomplished by investing in various options such as mutual funds, index funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and high-dividend stocks, which generate capital gains gradually over time. This strategy spreads risk which may result in long-term financial growth and helps to potentially earn income.  

Tips: Dividend stocks are regarded as a good long-term investment with growth potential. The passive income earned from dividend stocks grows as the company grows and pays out dividends.

10. Create a Job Board

In the realm of online entrepreneurship, running a job board is an excellent way to generate a passive income stream. These platforms function as hubs for employers to advertise job openings to prospective employees.

Job seekers frequently use these platforms to research new career opportunities, whether through online research or in-person interactions. You can earn money by offering self-employment ideas for women as one of the services of posting job listings on your job board. You can also offer premium features like sponsored job placements or unrestricted access to your database of potential candidates to increase your revenue potential.

11. Digital Products

Creating digital products is an excellent passive income idea to increase your cash flow. You can sell an ebook, course, printable, or template repeatedly without putting in extra effort once you’ve created it. You could potentially earn money while sleeping.

These passive income ideas are ideal for anyone looking to earn money without working around the clock. You can sit back and watch the sales roll in after a little research and effort to create a high-quality product. Passive income products also provide more freedom and flexibility.

Bottom Line- Passive Income Ideas for 2024

The bottom line is that generating passive income allows you to pursue your dreams even when you are not actively working. The concepts we’ve discussed are just a tiny fraction of the numerous potential passive income ideas available. The first step toward establishing a successful passive income stream is determining what works best for you and devoting some initial time and effort. Combining various passive income sources can improve your chances of long-term success. Passive income ideas are powerful tools that can provide you with the financial independence you deserve.
