The Swedish word Lah-gum stands for “Not too little; not too much; just right” and
captures the power of an individual in bringing about positive change.
What We Do
Promote chemical free living through products made using 100% natural ingredients by Wild Ideas, a unique enterprise owned and run by rural women of Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu.
Our mission has two parts – Environment and Social. To motivate 1 Lakh Indian homes to make the switch to natural alternatives. And double the number of disadvantaged women under the Wild Ideas umbrella.
Lagom is the happy outcome of the founders’ decade long journey of working in rural India, closely working with farmers and women, and recognising urban India’s deep disconnect with nature and disregard for environment.
Why Buy from Us
We have been fortunate to be at the receiving end of immense generosity. Most are not part of Lagom and yet they have been generous with their time and expertise. Thanks to friend Deepak Lagom got its site and store up and running in less than 3 months. Without his advice and support, I am sure we would have taken much longer.
Similarly, if our marketing collaterals and packaging have wowed people, it is thanks to Jalesh whose team is available at all times to execute it in the shortest possible time. Forever indebted to college going Yasha who dons the mantle of a photographer at the drop of a hat. If our product photography looks awesome, we have Yasha to thank.
After two years, we have gone in for a face lift. If the site and store looks world class, we have to thank the extremely talented Kannan D. He took the brief, and went a few steps ahead with it.
