Paintcollar, a marketplace for designer merchandise created by artists, raised its bridge round of funding. This round is a part of funding that Paintcollar is raising via investment platform Applyifi.
Mumbai-based Paintcollar, founded in September 2014, is an Applyifi portfolio startup selected in its first batch last month. The startup is an online platform for artists to share their artwork in form of products like t-shirts, mugs, phone cases and earning while offering variety of products.
Paintcollar handles manufacturing, delivery and everything else on artist’s behalf.
Within a span of one year, Paint collar has enrolled over 1000 artists and have created a product creation engine to break away from the confines of galleries and exhibitions and help them upload their art and manage sales.
Paintcollar has also tied up with a large music label to create and market merchandise for their artists.
