Our Story

Spreading Smile-Creating Memories

Our Story began when we decided to organize our brother’s wedding. We had the experience of handling a retirement bash, a baby shower, a 60th birthday and other one-offs but to engage our guests in a Five-day event was set to be a different ball game. We established favors and decoration as the two differentiating pillars; favors acted as a novelty factor, a topic for fun discussion and picture props whereas carefully thought, pocket-friendly and easy DIY (Do It Yourself) decoration ideas added the required color and glamour to the event. The end result was a budget-friendly wedding that created instant viral social media shares and everlasting memories.

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman
A firm believer of this quote, Dr. Johri continues to infuse her positive energy among people who surround her. While a 40 year career in teaching provided her the perfect platform to spread this energy and influence the next crop of influential minds, little did she realize that practicing her fabulous dressing sense as a means to living her passion for Sarees through this journey had also touched many souls inadvertently.  Fittingly thus, in her second innings she has decided to support her daughter’s dream of spreading “the love of the six-yard” across the globe. 
At the Favours Lab, she is responsible for developing a strategic approach to the corporate procurement and material management processs. Apart from managing quality control, she provides her vision and 40 years of acquired knowledge in Saree sourcing and draping to ensure that every saree profiled at the Favours Lab delivers the passion, aesthetics and love that is our promise. “You will see her as one of our models on our website too.”
