How did the brand By Adab’s start? What was the rationale behind launching this venture?
Best of the products are made in India but unfortunately not made available to the Indian market, sometimes even the same product is being imported back to India. 'By ADAB' Started with the thought to provide the best to our countrymen.

What would be the estimated market share of bath lines? Among this can you segregate the luxury segment?
Retail growth and expanding market for luxury bath linen is also contributing to our economy. Frequently changing home decors and lifestyle changes have reduced time-intervals between purchases.

According to you what are the challenges of bath linens retailing?
The Indian bath linens retail industry is highly captured by unorganized market which leaves a small space for brands to grow. The Second biggest hurdle in India for this market is the mindset of the consumer which is still not open to innovate and experiment. A bathroom is as important as the living room of a house but is treated the same way.
What is your pricing strategy? How are you competitive with others?
We try to offer the best quality and very long lasting products at very reasonable prices, thus making each and every product of ours Value For Money.
