Founders – Himanshu Parmar and Jinal Parmar


If possible, please describe your brand in not more than 10 words


In under 10 words is hard, but let me try. I’d say we are developing manufacturers of Acrylic Nameplates and Stencil Frames.

Where are you located?

We are located in Mumbai. And in the hearts of our customers.

How many (if more than one) members make up your team?

Akshar Creative is Jinal Parmar (my wife) and myself, Himanshu Parmar.


What were you doing before you started doing this?

I was doing a 9 to 5 job with a leading company.


Why did you choose to do what you do?

I was passionate to start my own thing and my wife motivated me. Happily, the response to begin with was most encouraging. We have gone from strength to strength since. 


We are fascinated by names. What’s the story behind your brand name?

Akshar means immortal, and we make creative things in our backyard. Both these words mean the world to us. Thus, was born Akshar Creative.

Which are your best selling products?

Our best sellers are Acrylic Name Plates Acrylic and Stencil Frames. We also make quirky coasters. These are very popular as well.

What kind of people do you create your products for?

Our products are for tasteful folk looking to add something creative and unique to their lives. Our products are also pocket-friendly, which makes them appealing to the budget-conscious.


What are the challenges you face in connection with achieving your goals?

Well, I love to start my work as soon as I get an order, make it, and deliver it way before the deadline. There are many things, like production supply, machinery, packaging and dispatch via courier. These are some of the challenges we strive to overcome every day.

Where do you see your brand three years from now?

We are launching a few things in the coming six months for the youth. We are looking to broaden our customer base. We see ourselves as a leading manufacturer of many creative things Acrylic. With hard work, imagination, and creative, we believe we will be in a better place three years from now.

What would you be doing if you weren’t doing this?

Well, I would be doing my 9 to 5 job in all likelihood. That said, the artist in me would be alive and thinking no matter what else I might be doing.
