The launch is in line with Pepperfry’s expansion strategy of the house brands portfolio and a positive margin contribution to the business growth.
Pepperfry’s latest house brand Clouddio has good quality mattresses and additionally offers pillows, mattress protectors etc. at competitive price-points for Indian consumers. Pepperfry’s bedroom furniture range, especially beds, has witnessed high traction amongst consumers and is one of the highest selling furniture item in terms of revenue. Therefore, entering the mattress and bedding segment is a natural extension of the company’s existing portfolio. It further strengthens Pepperfry’s product offerings to cover every small requirement of a home owner.
