Bangalore-based, Industree was co-founded by Neelam Chhiber nearly two decades back along with Poonam Bir Kasturi and started designing and retailing home accessories, but made by village artisans.

They worked through established NGOs and self-help groups and retailed through Industree branded stores, the first one which opened in 1996 in Bangalore.
