With a renewed thrust on marketing, coupled with Spykar’s business strengths of a great product, strong team work and the Metdist Group’s strategic guidance, we are all set to create waves in the fashion denim market. Our ambition is to double our revenue in the next couple of years,” said Vakharia.

We are passionate about Spykar’s story and strongly believe that under Sanjay’s leadership the brand will continue to grow exponentially in the years to come.
