+ Company Philosophy
The name ‘foliage’ literally means green cover, namely the plants and tress, that give shelter to the numerous organisms on the face of the earth. So ‘foliage’ also means the home for them. From this evolves our idea of design. Like in nature, it is coexistence and sustainability that holds the highest value for evolution.
Respecting fellow beings on earth, and allowing them to sustain like we do. Our passion lies in creating a difference, even in the smallest possible way to make space a better one to be. Being environment friendly and efficiently managing the enery cycle.
The fact that we are Indians, imbibe in us the respect to our culture and traditions, and keeping this a part of our design methods, to inculcate the feeling to the future generations. And lastly, be part of a system that imparts whatever knowledge we have to the next in line, keeping the spirit of education alive.
