this is our story
pink maharani was started in Geneva on the conviction that finest fashion, authentic impact and wisdom can be created by upholding craftsmanship, putting humans, animals and the environment first. We strive to make the finest artisanal products, which are beautiful, impactful and gentle reminders of deeper wisdom.
Our weaving techniques have remained true to their roots and traditional wisdom passed down over generations. We blend the old, timeless techniques with the European flair making every piece one of a kind and timeless. We specialize in handwoven ethical cashmere products and occasionally add fine soft cotton, silk and suri alpaca among other fine fibres to our collections.
pink maharani’s journey started as an experiment to source the finest handwoven cashmere (traditionally known as pashmina) from its root source in conflict-plagued Kashmir. Adventurous, challenging and obscure beautifully sum-up the founding years of the company. Thanks to the European design flair of Thais Grange (ex-cofounder) and the social entrepreneurial drive of Narmada Ramakrishna (active cofounder), pink maharani has grown, trans-morphed and continues to evolve. These ladies sowed the seeds but its the constant willingness, cooperation and trust of the 150+ artisans we work across India, Peru, Bhutan, Nepal, Cambodia, that has helped our tree root deeper. The core team of pink maharani which includes, Benjamin Schmid, Melina Limon, Lisa Bolz and our sales team are the ones who uphold our values everyday to the highest degree that constantly reminds us that we are not just a “fashion” company.
Our fabric of change builds bridges and connects us as communities to pursue something that is bigger than ourselves.
