This Gurgaon-based brand does sustainable and slow fashion, customised clothes made out of handloom fabric, and hand-crafted silver jewellery that you can find online, too. We fell in love with Manjha, not only for their clothes and jewellery, but also for their vision and the cause that they stand for. The owner, Nikita Seth, started the brand because she believes in promoting sustainability and the practice of fair trade in the fashion industry. She carefully designs and curates her entire collection, bearing in mind the well-being of the artisans who are behind the designs and the environment. Over the last few years, the fashion industry has started asking the question “Who made my clothes?” Nikita tries to educate people, not only about the individuals who made the fabric the clothes are made of, but also about the entire process that the clothes went through, right from the weaving of the fabric, to the printing, embroidery and the stitching that it goes through to get to the final product.
Their clothes are made from beautiful fabrics ranging from khadi to Ikat, all hand-made and handwoven. We’re particularly in love with their Ikat dresses and crop tops cum blouses that they make from fabric scraps and leftovers. Their collection of silver jewellery is wide and exquisite. From dainty rings to big chakra rings, and handmade artisanal silver earrings, they have something for everyone. We really love their Ellie ring and the ghunghroo rings. If you’re looking for something to gift to a friend, Nikita gives great advice and helps you pick out something beautiful and versatile from her collection. We say you look their website up and make some environmentally conscious fashion choices.
