Nambi Kai

NAMBI-KAI's values are deeply rooted in the creative vision of its founder, Delshia, who is committed to preserving traditional crafts and employing sustainable practices. Delshia's passion for Kalamkari led her to start an independent unit in Chennai and create a unique brand that not only offers natural and sustainable products but also empowers traditional artisans. Through NAMBI-KAI, Delshia inspires designers to explore and preserve rich traditional crafts while promoting sustainable fashion practices.

Craftsmanship often evolves through mechanisation or scalability, but at NAMBI-KAI, they focus on the evolution of motifs and styles expressed through their craft. Nature is their inspiration, and they find its patterns endlessly fascinating. Their aim is to capture the organic and free spirit of nature in their clothing and to achieve this, they needed to introduce the fluidity of art into their design.

At NAMBI-KAI, they don't provide their craftspeople with templates to reproduce; instead, they encourage them to practice freehand drawing and painting on the fabric. Every garment they create is unique and crafted with care. They also embrace the concept that nature allows space for imperfection and progresses towards perfection.

They value the gentle and organic flaws that define craft and art, and celebrate these little imperfections, allowing nature to work its magic on the fabric. By embracing this principle, they have achieved results that they could never have imagined.
