ABOUT US


 

Garuda is a family owned menswear company.
Initially founded in 2014 and manufactured in Auckland, New Zealand.

In early 2017 Garuda and its directors moved operations to Panchkula, India.
Now Garuda operates its own private workshop to maintain full control over the garment creation process, from concept, all the way to dispatch. 

Garuda aims to reinvent traditional menswear by creating ethically produced garments encompassing function, form and style.

Garuda uses a wide array of suppliers from around the world to source fabrics and hardware.

We aim to produce the highest quality products possible, that with the right care can last potentially a lifetime.

About Us

 

Suhail

Suhail Sahrawat (Director, Designer & Founder)

The Man behind The Madness. Suhail founded Garuda in 2014, to create functional clothing encompassing both style and flawless form.  A mission which is easier said than done, Suhail embarked on an enlightening journey through Asia where he developed what we now know as Garuda. Forgetting the norms set by conventional fashion houses, Garuda and Suhail display an unapologetic indifference to the way “things should be done”.

Kiran Sahrawat (Director, Accounts & Procurement)

During the late 80's and early 90's, Kiran ran one of the most popular made to order clothing boutiques in Chandigarh, India.  She also holds a PH.D in Accounting and Finance, which makes her an invaluable plethora of knowledge and advice. She acts as a mother to not only Suhail but to all of Garuda.
