Who We Are?
A vivacious experience that enthrals you; crafted by Shingora. Imbued with mesmerising designs and enchanting colours, this stimulating potpourri brings in a breath of fresh air to your wardrobe. Incepted with keen foresight and oodles of passion by Mrs. Mridula Jain, the three decade long journey has reached an unprecedented high. Everything that bears the Shingora brand name comes with quality assurance and ensconces a traditional heart in a contemporary style.
Shingora is not just a brand, it is an idea that blossomed into a fledging belief. A belief in the power of quality, infrastructure, dedication and vision. From being a modest garment, the shawl started being recognised as a fashion accessory. What was unthinkable in terms of achievement for a school teacher, became a hallmark of competence. It was a strong faith in her dream, coupled with hard-work and perseverance that made Shingora stand out. Her vision was further strengthened by her elder son, Mr. Amit Jain. Armed with an international education and work experience to back his competence, he took to the digitisation of the company from handlooms to a system driven enterprise. The company reached new heights under his guidance and pushed the bar higher for the existing shawl market.
The strongest suit of Shingora is its sound infrastructure. By continually adding to the existing skills and infrastructure, Shingora knows success cannot be taken for granted and constantly works towards deserving it. The hi-tech CAD systems, electronic jacquards, shuttle-less looms, moving carriage printing machines and continuous washing and finishing lines to fully automatic color kitchen for both dyeing and printing, fully automatic color and chemical dispensing systems and SAP ERP solutions give the process of printing, weaving and dyeing an edge. Avant-garde and exceptionally thorough at every level, Shingora has always welcomed change and is continually upgrading to latest technology.
Entwining the best of traditional and modern, each piece exudes a global appeal. Each piece is something to be cherished for generations for its timeless charm and fine craftsmanship.

Mr. Amit JainPresident

Due to mechanisation and digitisation, brand Shingora grew to be recognised as a name to reckon with.

His international education, work experience and love for travel broadened his perspective and egged him on to make Shingora a global name. Awareness of the latest in the textile industry also helped him on. The company shines bright at the very apex, miles away from the closest contemporaries. It was with his commitment that exports were initiated, taking the company a step closer to the global dream.
