What does “NARA” mean?
Okay! so there is a really fun story behind this, so when the core founding team was brainstorming for a catchy name for our company they had a lot of great ideas initially but none of them felt right, then they even tried various software that generates cool and catchy names for your company for you but nope, even those names didn’t feel right.
Then our founder Sujit got a brilliant idea, since NARA was going to be their baby, a company that they would nurture and grow with utmost love, passion and dedication he thought “why not name the company after my kids”. So finally the company was named after our founders’ lovely kids Nathen & Zara and that’s how we got our name NARA.
When & why did NARA start off?
We started out in July 2019 with a small idea in mind and a huge vision in our eyes, with the motive of making a difference in the world of Alcohol Ink Art. We saw that there were a lot of passionate and supremely talented artists all over the globe who absolutely loved alcohol ink art but there was no one to listen to them, their problems, help them with the difficulties they face. There was no one to assist them or to help them grow by giving them a platform to showcase their wonderful pieces of art.
There were companies that created products for alcohol ink art and sold them, but then what, what happens after you sell your products? What about the problems that the artists face, what about helping the community grow and giving back to the community? We realised this and that’s when we thought we should step in and change this. So here we are 2 years in, working hard every day for this beautiful Alcohol Ink Art community of ours but with the same drive, the same passion and the same motive that we had on the 1st day.
We have grown exponentially over the past 2 years; thanks to the vision of our founder Sujit Mathew Oommen, our hardworking team of extremely smart young individuals and most importantly the support and love of all the amazing alcohol ink artists from around the globe, without whom we would never get here.
