consciously crafted clothing
CONSCIOUSLY CRAFTED CLOTHING
Manan's quiet philosophy is filled with joie de vivre. It prevails in the sense of joy for small luxuries, relaxed routines and gentle everyday moments. Manan is Hindi for 'to meditate', and inspires our aim to 'eliminate excess', as condensed in the words of Zen Philosophy, "Wisdom is letting go of something every day". Friends Madhavi Ganeriwalla, and Sioned Emerys started Manan two decades ago, with a desire to bring a curation of handcrafted season-less wardrobe staples to the Indian market. Manan's first collection was an extension of our founders' personal style, designed for those who, like them, were seeking modest luxuries. Our Khan Market store has always been a haven for like-minded individuals for over 20 years. A kindred place for people to share their fondness for natural handwoven linen, relaxed silhouettes, and intricate embroidery techniques. At Manan, we make clothes for discerning women, who are looking for comfort-first silhouettes that are gentle to wear and kind to the environment. Our take on sustainability is that buying better is the key to buying less.For 20 years, we have focused on designing classic pieces of clothing that will stand the test of time.

"Manan's designs have longevity and can be re-worn and re-invented endlessly. These are timeless perennials that you will find yourself reaching out for time and time again."
