Our family values.
Extravaganza was launched in 2008 by the brother and sister duo Ash Parmar and Aarti Parmar. Their family left Kenya in 1969 leaving behind homes, businesses and family to start a new life in the UK. Under these circumstances their parents brought Ash and Aarti up to work diligently, fairly and sustainably to create an exciting future for themselves. In India the word “family'' is used to describe friends, staff, team, neighbours, work mates and community. The family ethos is a core value of Extravaganza as we are open, honest and very real with everyone we associate with. We see ourselves as a GLOBAL family making a big difference to people’s lives with creative branded products and gifts. To always be of service. Sustainability is an important part of our business. Indian families who came to the UK with very little were fabulous at repurposing everything and making things last forever. From covering a remote control with cling film, or reusing an old biscuit tin for storage or wearing hand- me-down clothes, this circular economy is part of Extravaganza’s DNA.
Love for colour.
We know you love colour and so do we! Especially when it’s matched to your brand palette. There are a few subtle and key differences in moving your merchandise from ordinary to EXTRAordinary. Colour can create a physical and emotional response when used correctly for promotional merchandise campaigns. Colour has its own frequency vibration and corresponds to a particular chakra or energy centre in our body. With this knowledge, we think it’s important to select the right colours for your brand. This way we are creating an intentional reality and desired effect both physically and emotionally with your promotional products. We love colour and as a company always sourcing new products in a wide range of colours.
Extravaganza is a creative design-led company. Ash went to Nene College in Northampton and then went to De Montfort University to study Graphic Design and Aarti went to Loughborough College of Art and Design, and Kingston University to study Illustration and animation. . At these traditional art colleges, they were taught fundamental design skills, old school style.
