The foundations for the present company were established on the 28th of January, 1955, when an enterprising entrepreneur, Mr. Shamji Parekh started Bharat Vijay Velvet and Silk Mills at Mumbai, India. He was one of the pioneers to introduce and manufacture Velvets in India.
Subsequently, the factory was shifted from Mumbai to an upcoming city “Surat” in the state of Gujarat. Hence “Bharat Velours” was born in 1998 under the able leadership of Mr. Shamji’s son, Mr. Bharat Parekh
