How to find her:
Welcome to my Profile,
I am Garima Kothari,
Garima Kothari, 21 Mumbai based Paper Crafter and designer. I have specialized in Handmade personalized Gifts. Art and Craft is my hobby since childhood and has turned into a profession for 6 years.
I was into Art and Craft since childhood, making creative things, best out of waste was my hobby. I used to get inspired by everything around me and try to put it in my art,
had put exhibitions when I was in school, I got a good response. Later, I started an Instagram page as my hobby when I was 15years, where people appreciated my work and insisted to customize it for them. That’s when I started to take commissioned orders.
Initially, when I started 6 years back, customized gifts were not so known and were appreciated by very few. In these 6 years, the views of our society has changed and so many people love to get gifts customized for their occasions.
We provide customized gifting solutions for all occasions. We have a wide range of gifts like explosion boxes, chocolate bouquets, cards, hampers, frames, albums, etc. We customize gifts as per the client’s request.
At the Initial stage, when I started on Instagram, I didn’t have an order for straight 4 months, but I still continued to do my task and when I got my 1st order, I was overwhelmed.
At first, people around used to mock about this and discourage me, they said it was just papers and hobby that couldn’t be a profession.
But, I still continued what I wanted to do. My mom has always been my backbone. Since childhood, she has supported me and where I am today is because of her. She has always encouraged me.
I design those memories that one can cherish for a lifetime !
I customize as per the client’s budget, occasion, and taste. I make each and every project with fine details and all my heart. I strive for perfection and don’t compromise on quality. With each and every order, goes a piece of my heart! I work for those beautiful smiles for my clients.
My clients have been very supportive, they reviewed my work, Instagram gave me a platform where I can connect to many people and they can connect with me for their personalizations.
As we say, Rome wasn’t built in a day; To achieve success one should focus on the process. It’s the most beautiful part of the journey. One will achieve success if they are committed to their goals!
