Bandhini's people come together to create amazing homewares and textiles.
*from left to right; Karan, Sharm, Tai, Mithoo, Sweety, Baby Naina, Sharan & Biba.
Bandhini is a seed grown from a small pod & kept special by our close-knit ties since its conception in 1993. Our very favourite things are what nature gives – from trees, cocoons and seeds.
Families from two sides of the world work together – Mithoo & Sweety and their sons Sharan & Karan with their deep love for Indian culture & craft. Tai, from 5 generations of women in textiles, shares a passion passed down through my matriarchal line. The children on both continents have grown sharing our different cultures & now join us as we pass on our shared goals.
