Amrapur Overseas started in California in 1983 by father and son duo, Harry and Chandru “Kevin” Wadhwani. Initially, we began as a supplier of institutional andhospitality linens and later expanded into retail home fashion textiles and décor items.
Amrapur’s roots date back to 1960 when founder, Harry M. Wadhwani started in Hong Kong as Lachmi’s International Limited. Today Lachmi’s is amongst Hong Kong’s leading trading company, actively manufacturing fashion apparel, home textiles and decor, while at the same time, sourcing various items for its customers. In addition to sales in North America, we actively sell to Mexico and Latin America, UK, parts of Europe, as well as Dubai and the Middle-East.
Our core strength is sourcing, with over 50 years of sourcing experience. We bring with us a deep understanding of both the Asian manufacturing culture, as well as the understanding of the retail arena. We believe all sales start with the right sourcing and then sales will follow.
