“Our aim through Stripes & Checks is to build a globally accepted brand which is deeply rooted in the unique appeal of our Motherland, Sri Lanka. We are a destination recognised for apparel manufacturing but have yet to create an apparel brand with a global presence. We are determined to achieve this goal by presenting a product on par with international standards. Hence our product focus is on quality, design, fit and affordability,” said Gajan Vinothan, Co-Founder and CEO of the locally spawned and globally envisioned brand”.

The management assures its customers of safety as extensive precautionary measures, adhering to government directives will be followed throughout the shopping experience.
