Passion can result in wonders when slowly and tenderly mixed with a lot of hard work and a larger-than-life vision. With a strong visually enhanced perspective, Supriya Donthi has dived deep into the world of magic and miracles. Her brand Leafy Affair is a by-product of her sheer love for the greenery around her, her burning fondness towards creativity, and how she brings it all together to create something new, something extraordinary. Letting that creativity slowly blossom, her passion has been nurtured by how her mother and grandmother both seemed to have a knack for it.
In 2016, just at the age of 24 – she weaved together an idea of aesthetically representing nature to the world through beautiful jewellery. Where every piece designed has a tale to tell – one that takes you off to a far-off land full of mystique. She was a project manager who found love in entrepreneurship, courtesy of the strong business acumen she has always found herself drawn to. She began by selling miniature terrarium jewellery which she used to make herself. Slowly and steadily she carved a niche for her brand Leafy Affair which is now known for its beautiful botanical keepsakes that helps you keep a piece of nature with yourself forever.
Today the brand has been bifurcated into 5 categories. With an efficient team of 7, they dispatch about 2000 orders a month. Over 30000 customers are ecstatic with the products received and the quality experienced. Having incubated with IIMB, the brand has been growing from strength to strength as it has received impactful grants.
Of the brand’s many accolades, Your Story has given Leafy Affair the title of one of the Top brands in the 500 D2C challenger list and was also awarded the Time She Unlimited raising Entrepreneur Award in 2019. Success has been gifting from this humbling journey that Supriya has had from being a product manager to an aspirational entrepreneur.
For those looking for a unique factor about the brand, it is precisely that it is one of a kind. The brand used preserved botanicals and is the first to introduce such a technique in the D2C ecosystem. Currently, their entire business is online and has so far reaped great results.
What makes Surpriya a businesswoman with a steady vision is her organized planning for the growth of the brand. In the next 5 years, the brand aims to reach the spot of being a 100Cr Brand. Not only are they expanding geographically, but product-wise too, variations have been making their presence felt. From being a fashion-related brand, Leafy Affair has now divulged into the home-decor space as gifting is the prime source of business for the brand. What had initially started with terrarium preserves slowly started expanding in the home decor and stationery sections like paperweights and bookmarks. What also stands out as one of the most gratifying facets of Leafy Affair is how inclusive it is. Irrespective of gender biases, race, class, or creed – like they say, there’s something for everyone. It is about embracing and celebrating one and all just the way they are, one uniqueness at a time.
The USP of Leafy Affair is also that each design is different from the other, with a different story to tell. No design is similar to each other hence letting diversity flourish.
Supriya believes in always owning your drive. Her sharp understanding makes her believe in not stopping and always keeping on moving, despite the hurdles and roadblocks. The grass can be greener on all sides if you only hold on and also have your technical aspects in places such as your niche market, product-market fit, and problem-solution fit – signs that you are moving ahead with the right purpose and result in mind.
