Sonal started Silviano in 2020. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Silviano?
My brother Nakul and I have both been very fortunate to be a part of a family business with over 70 years of experience in leather.
Crowdfunding is the perfect tool for launching a new brand as it gives new brands product and market validation and proof of concept.
Nakul comes from a background in finance and I have a background in international fashion, luxury brand management, and textile science. From a very young age, we started learning about the business from our father and grandfather.
After working in the business for over a decade we realized that there was a gap in the market for luxury leather goods that were beautiful in design, high in quality, affordable in price, and adaptable to the modern-day tech market.
We wanted to create a brand where customers could buy a luxury product without the extra mark-ups and put the savings in their own pockets. Since we manufacture the products in our factory and sell directly to the consumers, we eliminate all middlemen and the extra costs.
We decided to combine the knowledge of skilled craftsmanship and quality passed down by our forefathers, along with our own knowledge of functionality, sustainability, modern design & technology, and thus, Silviano Sleeve was born.
