About Us

At zameeni, we strive to embody the essence of our name, which means “rooted”, in Hindi. By embracing our three core values: Ethical, Ethnic, and Exclusive, we celebrate art and imagination and bring that to the world. Under the visionary leadership of Ms. Manisha Jhamb, zameeni was founded with a mission to revive the dying heritage of Indian art, by empowering the artisans at the grassroots level.

The woman behind zameeni

As the curator of zameeni, Mrs. Jhamb personally selects the finest handcrafted pieces from across India, ensuring that each product is a testament to our commitment to ethical and sustainable practices. Through our premium collections of sarees, stoles, scarves, and suit pieces, we bring the traditional art of India directly to you, handpicked by the craftsmen themselves.

In addition to her role as the curator of zameeni, Mrs. Jhamb is also the founder of the NGO Mindbuddies, working towards mental well-being, and a poetess who sheds light on social issues through her writing.

“We are proud to offer our customers a unique shopping experience, where each product is not just a piece of clothing, but a story waiting to be told. Join us in our mission to revive and preserve the rich heritage of India’s art, by choosing zameeni for your next purchase.”

The fascination behind weaving tradition

Manisha Jhamb, the visionary curator of zameeni, was deeply influenced by the timeless beauty of her grandmother's sarees from a young age. Despite her family's roots in Punjabi culture, she was captivated by the allure of the traditional garment and referred to the sari as a ``six-yard epitome of elegance.`` With a keen eye for detail and a passion for preserving cultural heritage, Manisha embarked on a journey to revive the dying art of Indian craftsmanship. She journeyed to every corner of India, from the bustling streets of Banaras to the remote regions of Kutch, to curate an exclusive collection of authentic and handcrafted artwork. The result of her efforts is zameeni - a brand that embodies the perfect blend of modern fashion and traditional art.
