Get to know Kajal Sanghrajka, Fab-featured founder of EbK—Eyewear by Kajal!
My name is Kajal.
When I was little, I thought I was going to be taller than I am now.
My proudest moment so far has been the launch of our first curated vintage collection with Selima Optique at Bond07 in New York. It was our first entrance into the US market and we had a very positive response to the products plus a few celebrities in attendance!
The best vacation I ever took was in India. We did a charity bike ride from Agra near the Taj Mahal and finished in Jaipur at the Amber Fort. It took 5 days and was physically tough but absolutely breathtaking at the same time.
When I need to relax, I … write and write and write….
The thing I love most about my job is meeting incredibly talented and creative people every day. For me business is about the people you meet and the relationships and value you build with them.
I draw inspiration from my fellow entrepreneurs. EbK is part of a co-working space, Columbia Business Lab in Soho. We have a room of passionate and ambitious people who are building great companies and who I have the good fortune to talk to and gain feedback from everyday.
I cannot work without … Pandora!
In five years, I hope to have millions of happy customers looking brilliant wearing our vintage and in house designed collections.
Three things you should know about my company are:
1. All our products are unworn, one-of-a-kind original vintage sunglasses & frames handpicked from all over Europe.
2. EbK stands for Eyes by Kajal. Kajal is the Hindi word for Kohl, traditionally used by women in India to beautify their eyes. It was destiny!
3. We are currently collaborating with a fellow Fab designer and founder of Sienna Ray bags at a pop up in Soho. Come down and try on our products at 252 Mott Street through the end of January!
