Introduction


The Spykar story started in 1992 when Prasad Pabrekar decided to venture into fashion
apparels and accessories to make use of his vast repertoire of technical knowledge in
processing denim garments. In 1994, Spykar moved beyond denims and introduced
Heliums, a collection of cotton casual wear.

In 2002 Spykar launched Cargos and revolutionized the styling and packaging of the
product, which resulted in instant success for the company. The brand from there on has
evolved from a denim wear brand into a lifestyle brand and has added varied lifestyle
categories from Shoes to Deos to Eyewear.

The brand has won the prestigious Apex awards of CMAI as Brand of the year Causal
Wear - Large and Product Innovator of the Year for 2007, 2008& 2009. It has also won
the Advertising Campaign of the year -2008.

Special Jury Award in Retail Excellence at Asia Retail Congress in the year 2009.
