FOUNDER: LEAH SING H
Leah Singh has two homes. She was born and raised in Delhi, India, but moved to Parsons, New York, where her father’s family lived to further her studies in Industrial Design. Leah moved back to Delhi where she was exposed to many design histories and current design trends that inspired her to establish her own brand. The brand reflects who she is and the experiences she has gained. She tries to incorporate her learnings and the things she’s seen. Today, Leah works with artisans to produce textiles made using traditional techniques including embroidery, weaving, and printing, which she describes as “unique and rare with a rich history in them.” She strives to keep the dying crafts and techniques alive by creating a new market and appreciation for them. She does this by incorporating these textiles into her beautiful creations, namely home products and clutches, and introducing them to the United States. Leah spends her summer and winter breaks in New York. She loves the energy, diversity, art, and design there. For more information, visit www. leahsingh.com/
“These traditional techniques are labor intensive and require highly- skilled hands. They cannot be acquired from school or workshops; rather, they are passed down from one generation to the other within a family,” says Leah Singh.
