Deepti – Threads & More
What do you make / sell? Tell us about yo’ self.
I am an Interior Designer and owner at Threads & More, where I design and sell accent pillows. I also offer home décor consultation.
How long have you had your business?
Our collection is now available online. It’s been in the works since September 2016
How did you get started?
The plan was to look for a job once my daughter starts going to school. I did find a job as an administrative staff but it did not satisfy my creative urge. Beautiful home décor, accent pieces and tastefully done homes always grabbed my attention. I used to come up with involuntary home décor tips and ideas for friends. I have a design degree, so I knew I had the perfect set of skills to turn this talent into a business. I thought of designing pillows as it’s the cheapest and the most effective home décor item to transform any space. Its gives me the freedom to play with different colors, fabric textures and patterns.
Who or what inspires your work?
Myself and what little I have achieved, inspires me to work even harder and achieve more.
What do you dream for your business in the future?
Success and Recognition. My dream is to work with the leading interior designers and see Threads & More pillows in more and more living rooms.
What’s your favourite social media platform and why?
Instagram. I love it as a platform to showcase your work, get instant appreciation and get connected with the industry experts.
How do you pick yourself up when things go wrong?
My family is my strength! I count my blessings that I have a supportive husband, a beautiful daughter and an opportunity to pursue my dreams.
What’s one thing no one knows about you? Give us an interesting fact!
I am not a morning person. I am as cranky as a toddler, if I don’t get my 8 hour sleep.
If you could have any super power what would it be?
Keeping my loved ones safe and alive forever.
