About the project

Pebbles is an exclusively handcrafted shoe brand that offers vibrant yet classy designs that are unique in their appeal.


WE GOT FEATURED ON WODROB!

Click here to read the full article


Each and every pair of shoes that we make at Pebbles, are handcrafted from scratch. The process starts from making the shoes, followed by painting them according to the design. The shoes are designed keeping in mind the fact that these will be used on a daily basis. Therefore, art is blended with subtlety to make them equal parts attractive and functional. The customer's comfort is always of utmost important at Pebbles. Each Pebbles' pair tells a story with the help of unique designs and colours that surely steal the show!


 


The journey so far…

Combining my passion for painting and the knowledge of marketing, which I had attained from my MBA degree, I started Pebbles while still in college! Looking at the immense response I received during the initial phase, I decide to take the brand ahead. There has been no looking back since then!




Team Pebbles

Always a supportive figure in my life, my father, Mr. B. S. Chaudhry, joined my venture post his retirement from his business. He is also a very creative person and that fact came handy during his second innings! He handles the operations at Pebbles. Saniya Husain and Megha Gole are from my MBA college. We gradually became co-workers apart from being friends as well. They help me build Pebbles' brand image through photography and content writing.


The unique business model


After I started Pebbles while still in college, I gradually realized that my brand can provide a platform to emerging entrepreneurs studying in college to work with us and build their leadership skills. Combining education with practical application had helped me grow as a student. Hence, at Pebbles, we provide full freedom to students who collaborate with us, so that they can get first-hand experience in marketing and sales.

Why crowdfunding?

I have brought Pebbles together with my own savings and fortunately, we have been able to survive with the profits that we make. Pebbles is a creative brand with a unique business model. We don't want somebody else to drive our business model with only profits in mind. We don't want to compromise on our art and creativity for anything. Hence, crowdfunding is the apt platform to generate funds and thereby expand Pebbles.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 340000 in Manufacturing

Rs. 50000 in Packaging

Rs. 15000 in Branding & Advertising

Rs. 45000 in Admin Fees


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

Pebbles has made a name of its own in the market with its unique footwear. But, in order to survive in this industry we need to evolve. We have a lot of options for women but we also want to introduce footwear for men as we have been receiving requests from men as well. To meet quality standards, we have to get inventory in bulk and for that to happen we need funding. We want our customers to experience the best, but the unavailability of expensive raw material doesn’t really help us. We have been getting good response from colleges, and we are expanding our network there. By the end of 2017, we aim to have 20 colleges under Pebbles’ leadership network. To reach out to this big an audience, we need funds to hire network leaders across colleges.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

Passion to do something different and creative is what brings our team together. Everyone is from different educational / professional backgrounds but still are giving their heart and soul to Pebbles by self-learning and experimenting. We want to add more such creative people to our team and want to spread our creativity across India. Along with that, we have been providing a platform to college students to unleash their potential and enhance their leadership skills by working with us.
Hence, we need capital and support to take all of these initiatives further. Do come forward and help us keep Pebbles independent.

What happens when I don't raise enough money?

If we can’t raise enough money, our dream of making Pebbles a pan-India name will take longer than usual. Also, our unique model of empowering students will not materialise without your support. But we have absolute belief in our passion and that has brought us together, along with our dedication to the art of shoemaking. Your contribution can greatly help us achieve our dream faster.
