Prama Bhardwaj

Director, Ethical Fashion Forum (SOURCE)

Prama Bhardwaj, Founder & CEO Mantis World, spent her childhood between Kenya, India and the UK. She studied Development Economics for her Master’s degree, with a focus on development in Africa.

In 2000, Prama founded Mantis World: an award-winning supplier of sustainably sourced clothing. Backed by a strong ethical ethos, they strive to create high quality garments that will be worn and loved for years to come. The company’s heritage came through working with their family-owned vertical mill, Sunflag in Arusha, Tanzania; established in 1965 and employing over 1500 workers. They offer a fully transparent certified supply chain to ensure social, environmental and organic production standards are met.

Prama has recently returned to London after spending two years with her family in Zanzibar. Firmly involved in the running of the company and its overall direction from both locations, the move has given her a wider perspective on two areas she is passionate about: her business and non-commercial projects.
