Resham and Sharmishta
Resham Melwani is a talented designer and free spirit whose eye for style and design has earned her a reputation in the fashion and lifestyle industries. Her passion for travel and discovering craftsmen, artisans and rising designers sparked the idea to bring curated and complementary collections of lifestyle products to the market.
Sharmishta brings to this duo a strong understanding of marketing and product management from her time working in fashion in India for several notable brands. For Sharmishta, the process of creation and seeing a product come from sketch to life is something she has alwaysbeen drawn to.
Together, Resham and Sharmishta founded Agora with a common vision is to inject a fresh approach to pursuit of wellness through lifestyle and gifting, and continue to scour the globe with their discerning eyes for products that areexquisite, high-quality and thoughtful.
When Resham Melwani and Sharmishta Basappa discovered their mutual love for design, fashion and all things related to wellbeing and health, Agora was born. Both creatives, ourvision is to share the knowledge and joy of caring for your mind, body and spirit in a gentle way. This is motivated by our desire to enhance and nurture our loved ones and their wellbeing – something we often take for granted in the business of modern living. Whether your purchase is a gift for yourself or someone you care about, we hope that it bears both emotional significance and delivers mental and physical health benefits for a more balanced life. We believe that enjoying the benefits of living present and conscious lives begins with self-care and have made it our mission to source and share products that will help you feel empowered, confident and ready to take on all that life has to offer.
