Namai is an independent, New York-based fashion brand founded by Bianca Kuttickattu in 2020. We create timeless, zero-waste clothing from repurposed antique Indian textiles that can be worn by people of all genders, all year round.
Namai garments are designed to outlive transient seasonal trends. Each one-of-a-kind piece has already stood the test time: all of our items are made from second-hand Kantha quilts sourced in Jaipur.
Kantha quilting is the traditional Bengali craft of patching together and embroidering cloth and saris. By the time our designs are sewn, our fabric is on its third life-cycle and has passed through the hands of generations of women.
By combining the high-impact colors and patterns of our materials with low impact production, Namai looks towards a future of fashion that is earth-friendly, while celebrating the unique history embedded in every piece.
