Ugha Ethnics is a popular label for Assamese Ethnic Wear. The label took birth following Priyanka D Patwari’s passion for fashion and designing.
From a very young age, Priyanka had an inclination towards style and fashion and dreams of becoming a fashion designer. She did not look back and walked ahead with a desire to turn her dream into a reality. She enrolled herself for a diploma in fashion designing at JD Institute of fashion Technology. It was a tumultuous time for Priyanka as she had to juggle between her Graduation studies and Fashion Designing. She completed her Post Graduation while simultaneously honing skills and acquiring professional knowledge in the field of designing. Priyanka involved herself in studying various aspects of Handloom and Textile Designing, learnt different types of dyeing processes as well as printing at WSC under Ministry of Textile of India. The Ministry also selected her to work as a Master Trainer in Block Level Cluster for imparting training to rural masses to enable them to take up self employment activities.
Her Entrepreneurial Journey
She started off her project “Ugha Ethnics” in the year 2014 with just 2 looms but with an ocean of ideas. Presently, Ugha Ethnics boasts of having 30 looms and has provided employment to over 30 weavers with a steady source of income for their families as well. Ugha Ethnics is more than a label, it is a family, a family that supports each other financially and mentally. The weavers are integral members and Priyanka has been able to build a pillar of trust in the last 6 years. Priyanka D Patwari is an empowered woman empowering other women.
