NEW DELHI: Fashion jewellery maker Voylla.com is in talks with Aditya Birla Group and Reliance Retail to sell its products in their multi-brand stores. The online jeweller has recently entered bricks-and-mortar retail.
"We already have a tie-up with the Future Group and are now in talks with Birla retail and Reliance also," said Vishwas Shringi, founder and CEO of Voylla Fashions.
