Bring your photograph to the studio and you could walk away with a pair of curtains, bedding or cushion cover with the image imprinted on it. The company has recently added ladies shoes, handbags and junk jewellery to its array of products.

Mr. Gagan Goenka, Managing Director, Onkar Group, said “The day to day life in India, especially the life in the city of joy, has inspired the creations of Onkar. Onkar Group is ready to bring a revolutionized change to current fashion needs. The group’s first media venture, a regional Bengali News Channel is also on the anvil.”

Onkar is targeting mainly the premium and niche clientele. Their USP lies in the complete product; right from the inception of the creative work that boasts of its exclusive designs, patterns or printing not to be found anywhere in India.

Every piece of work can be personalized as per the client requirement as they truly deliver what one can perceive. The elegantly trendy brand with designs, bolder, outlandish and daring – both in colors and concepts, introduces Indians to a concept they had never before set their eyes upon.
