We will be taking Design Confab to multiple location across India within the next one year and globally as well.”

Our products are a perfect symphony of global designs, with manufacturing in view of tough Indian water conditions and roughed usage.
The product designs from Jaquar Group meet global parameters on ergonomics, finish, material, safety standards, environmental impact and functionality.
