Growth is never by mere chance; It is the result of forces working together. And just like that, for CAI to reach the pinnacle of success, it took two competent entrepreneurs who dared to take an unprecedented business stride and shape an extraordinary trend in the footwear league. Aradhana & Dhanraj together launched The CAI Store in 2015. The duo made CAI with sole purpose of providing fashionable and modest footwear that is manufactured without the use of leather, with contemporary styles and a compassionate virtue warrantying the tagline - “handmade with love.”
CAI began its journey with the compassionate motive of providing non-leather shoes and footwear locally and globally to the trend-conscious mart at a pocket-friendly rate. CAI aims at creating aesthetic yet functional shoes with a fresh take on conscious consumption. The brand incorporates a vast collection ranging from open and closed flats to heels and wedges in multiple colours, patterns, and embellishments.
Remaining true to their homegrown and bespoke sensibilities, the CAI store offers customization keeping in mind the eclectic tastes of the clientele. CAI believes in prioritizing customer satisfaction to create fashion-forward styles with impeccable quality.
