Founder, Aartyz

It is said that there is no force equal to that of a determined woman. Aarti Deshpande Sabnis is an example of creativity, determination and passion. She is also an inspiration to countless other women who are scared to step out of the shadows into the limelight. Aarti is an MBA & lawyer by education and an entrepreneur by choice. A dedicated wife and a mother to two. She started off her career as a Sales Manager and went on to being a Branch Manager in the Financial sector. As a wife of a Naval officer, she chose to adapt her career as per the opportunities she received. She got an opportunity to serve at a Naval block printing unit in Vizag. Always inclined towards creativity and a gifted artist herself, Aarti found her calling after a chance meeting with other enterprising ladies who were showcasing their creations at an exhibition. Her own attention to detail and passion towards art made her quit the prospering career in the finance field and start something of her own. The idea of starting an ALL WOMEN ORGANIZATION and working towards employment generation and financial freedom for women is what gave birth to Aartyz. Starting from one room with one table and one tailor, Aartyz has grown leaps and bounds with time. Aarti plunged into establishing her own niche in the fashion industry and wholeheartedly took care of all the aspects right from the material sourcing, designing, manufacturing and marketing of the products. The unfaltering support of her husband, children, parents and in-laws resulted in her establishing a full-fledged unit in Nagpur. Her keen business acumen and commitment towards quality quickly gained her popularity. Aarti has also been an active contributor in many philanthropic activities of the society. Aarti ensured that this enterprise works with the same ethos and trust as the environment in which its dream was nurtured. Starting on a small scale, Aartyz is now set to make its mark in both national and international market.
