Mensa Brands, an ecommerce roll-up firm, has reportedly acquired its 13th brand Folkulture, a home décor brand.

Some of its products are Home Décor, Kitchen & Dining Linen, Incense Holders, Mandala Tapestry and more
Commenting on the latest move, Founder and CEO of Mensa Brands, Ananth Narayanan stated that Folkulture is a significant collaboration for the group in the demanding home décor category, one of the major areas where the firm is considering its probabilities in the local and international markets.
Ananth mentioned that the team has also developed a roadmap for Folkulture to grow ten times by 2025. Furthermore, Mensa will also be looking at adding more products and channels for brands in the coming months while also solidifying its presence in the major global markets.
Chaiti Jain and Rinkesh Mehta, Co-Founders of Folkulture believe that with Mensa, the company will demonstrate exponential growth in the coming years. Additionally, Folkulture is gratified to be supported by such an amazing team.
