In addition to working directly with each customer on design and concept, she [Sudha] goes to India four times each year to be sure there is total product follow through. Working with the master crafts people, often found in remote villages and locations, she is able to supply product of remarkable quality and craftsmanship. Perhaps, best of all, in a pipeline filled with endless delivery problems and monotonous designs, she has a remarkable record of on time delivery with unique product offering. Her staff in Delhi is on top of each order on a daily basis.I highly recommend Sudha’s House of Pennathur as a profitable and reliable company to do business with.
