Two young entrepreneurial sisters making a difference with a fashion forward organic cotton baby clothing!

Oprah, Sama Baby, Aishwarai Rai and Abhishek Bachan! September 30, 2009

So, you may not know, but Oprah is one of my favorite shows to watch.  Did anyone watch Oprah yesterday? Of course, one of the best shows I’ve watched in a while from her!

Oprah featured Bollywood, not for the first time this year, but the SECOND! She had Aishwarai Rai Bachan and Abhishek Bachan on her show – talking about how hot India is – how festive the culture was, and how interesting it is.

As someone who has grown up here with an Indian background – it has been wonderful to watch the unveiling of Indian culture! It is wonderful how welcoming Oprah is and opening up everyone’s perspective on some of the most major actors around the world!

Our inspiration for Sama Baby  – Organic cotton baby clothing is straight from India. The rich colors, the prints, the ideas behind our design are specifically straight from my culture.

I am so happy to see that our culture is so beautifully accepted and expressed – and everyone loves the how exotic and festive our culture is!

I wanted to give you an inspirational trek on how I designed one of our items!

If you see our kimono top with beautiful ruffles, I used the ancient motif of the paisley.  If you look at Aishwarai’s sari on the show – she is wearing a beautiful sari that features beautiful paisleys.  She is sticking to traditional motifs and prints – beautiful little embroidered motifs that feature Indian culture!

Our kimono top is rooted from Indian motif design featuring the paisley, the organic nature by including little specs of green leaves, and the western favorite colors of chocolate and pink for little girls.
This piece was a way for me to combine the whimsical style of a kimono top, with my passions and culture!

cblook at the paisleys at the bottom of her outfit!

A Thank You to All Moms out there! September 25, 2009

Everyone has one. I mean literally everyone I know has one. A cute little Coach wallet or a demi purse. How cute?

Well a little secret here in the Sama office. I used to help design those. Like pick colors of the leathers, the hardware, the edgepaint on the side of the hangtag. The hangtag shape – you name it. I was a design developer, and I loved my job.

But you know what I love even more. My job now. Working with family, having a flexible schedule so if I am needed anywhere I can run if necessary. Working into the wee hours of the night, and not feeling that I am checking in, or really trudging along. Instead, I followed my passion to do exactly what I wanted – and we are getting great response.

So my way of thanking all of you – moms that love my product, moms that take photos of their children in my clothing, and put it on their facebook page, moms that get my gifts, moms that are so inspiring to me – this is my way of giving back to you.
Now what’s the hardest job in the world? Being a mom. So you know what, splurge a little bit. Buy a beautiful Sama outfit for your little one. Why not get a cute $200 Coach Wallet in your order. That’s my way of saying to ALL you moms out there that I meet, and moms I don’t meet: “YOU DESERVE IT!”

Thank you for supporting me! For letting me jump off the corporate ladder, and really focus on being green and promoting fair trade, eco-friendly dyes, and designing clothes that are inspired by India, made in India, to benefit India! So go, and visit http://www.samababy.com and get your chance now – one in fifty customers this week!

Love you all,

Neha
