Being Human, the clothing line with a heart, has made a strong hold all over the country with its massive presence in past 4 years under its global licensing partner Mandhana Retail Ventures Ltd. Being Human Clothing was operating as a retail division of MRVL’s flagship company, Mandhana Industries Ltd from 2012-2016. In 2016, the retail division has demerged and the said business now vests with Mandhana Retail Ventures Ltd. Being Human Clothing has seen a steady growth through their stores since opening in 2012 and has received tremendous support from its customers in every city it has embarked in.
The brand closed FY16 with 51 exclusive stores in India including 1 in Nepal. As part of their expansion strategy, Being Human Clothing has reached a milestone with its presence across the length and breadth of the country having a footprint in 35 cities with a total retail size of approximately 66181 sq. ft. Being Human Clothing is also selling through more than 200 point-of-sales in India through major retail partners such as Central, Jade Blue, Globus, Lifestyle, Shoppers Stop, Splash and Westside and is available across 150 Multi Brand Outlets across India. Additionally, the brand is available with the top e-commerce partners in India such as ABOF, Amazon, Flipkart, Koovs, Jabong, Myntra and Snapdeal.
Kunal Mehta, VP – Marketing and Business Development, Being Human Clothing said, “We are thrilled to have reached a milestone of 51 exclusive stores and overall 350 point of sales in just under 4 years of inception. It is overwhelming to see such a great response not only from our customers but also our partners who have supported the brand to reach maximum pincodes in the country. We are looking forward to continue to share 100 per cent love care share in newer markets.”
The clothing line with a heart that saw its launch in France in 2012 has since seen a widespread global growth. With 500 point-of-sales worldwide Being Human Clothing is available in over 15 countries across Europe, Middle East, Nepal and India and with its online sales channel set up in Europe, India, Middle East, UK, USA and South Africa it delivers to every continent in the world.
