As a teen he ran away to Mumbai from his home town Bangalore and worked near Gateway of India, selling small leather products to the wealthy folks who stayed and visited the famous Taj Mahal Palace Hotel. His later job as a production manager in a leather garment company gave him tremendous exposure to the world of leather, fashion and luxury. He travelled intensely and had the opportunity to work with many European iconic brands.This is where he learnt and understood how these global luxury brands used the traditional skills and craftsmanship of Indian artisans and often produced some of the finest articles sold in the luxury markets across the world. His passion for leather and his desire to create a world class Indian company took shape and he started STANLEY AUTOMOTIVE seating as a garage start up with three fine craftsman and a small capital of three lakh rupees.Today STANLEY employs over 600 of the finest artisans from across India. Mr. Sunil and thirty ex-colleagues who are currently employed, share a world of knowledge on sourcing & usage of genuine leather.
