KARACHI: Cocoon Home opened its door on 29th June 2018 at Karachi’s upscale shopping district Bukhari Commercial. At its door opening / soft launch was attended by suppliers, vendors selected media representatives and members of Dalal family including Jabbar Dalal, Saleem Dalal, Tauseef Dalal, Mulghalar Hassan, Ammara Jabbar, Waleed Jabbar, Vali Mohammad Dalal, David Midelberg from USA, Abdul Hameed Aslam and Saad Saleem.
Speaking to BizToday correspondent at the soft launch Ms. Mulghalar Hassan, Ms Mulghalar Hassan Creative Director / Creative Head at Cocoon Home said; “we are immensely proud to announce the opening of our own home store by the name of ‘Cocoon Home’ which will be a brand of Dalal Industries”.
Ms. Mulghalar Hassan said; “Cocoon Home is a home store currently focusing on home textile and its accessories with an aim to make your home look more eye pleasing and more artistic to your taste”.
Tracing back to roots from where the idea of Cocoon Home originated, she said; “as you know that Cocoon Home is a brand of Dalal Industries which started its journey in 1994 and since has served the Pakistani export market by carving a niche for itself. Since 2005 Dalal Industries has been exporting finished products all over the globe, specializing in hotel bedding and from that ‘Cocoon Home’ came about as a natural next step. Cocoon Home is the brainchild of Tauseef Saleem, who has been associated with parent company Dalal Industries since long and through his sharp intellect and business acumen could sense that Dalal Industries could offer more to Pakistani clientele”.
Creative Head at Cocoon Home further went on to say; “at this moment we are stocking home textile from our parent company along with home furnishing items from our partners like ‘Gravity Design’ who supply customised furniture and our other partner ‘Forget me not’ supplies artificial plants meant for home décor”.
She further said; “we are offering best quality products like high-end bed sheets and complete bedroom furniture and its accessories and with that we aim to serve clientele that falls in between mid-level to high-end ones”.
On expectations, Ms. Mulghalar Hassan said; “as we already have an online presence and upon announcing of soft-launch the response from friends and well-wishers is overwhelming and we are expecting to do well. We also have plans to add another store in Karachi within one year, followed by opening-up stores in Lahore and Islamabad.”
