UpNext is a full-fledged India-based cult brand and social enterprise created in celebration of You and this beautiful planet – Earth.
In 2019 UpNext started with Karan & Manish’s passion for material exploration and a need to reuse the disposed waste in India. The duo realized the capacity to go beyond making an environmental impact and the idea of designing and producing a local product that revolutionizes Indian handcrafts became very appealing.
With much sweat and support the abstract idea manifested into an environmentally-conscious social-enterprise that applies a slow-fashion model, reducing waste through ethical production and supporting local artisans and women who endure harsher conditions.
Karan Jain & Manish Jain Founders of UpNext are the brand’s driving force. Their vision, passion, determination, entrepreneurial minds and design skills gave birth to this world of UpNext and their efforts sustain the brand’s growth. Whether it’s designing, overlooking production, managing the brand and its collaborations with the NGOs or catering for the needs of their teams, they do it whole-heartedly!
At UpNext, we’re continuously working towards ‘Saving Our Planet and stylizing the waste.
