A socially conscious brand offering handcrafted exquisite jewellry celebrating women while supporting global MAternal HEalth and Neonatal Development Initiatives
MAHENDI Projects was born out of a shared desire to make a difference in the world. Realizing that together, they could do more, six women fused their talents and experiences to create this fashionable cause. They curate thoughtfully designed and ethically sourced jewelry that celebrates and supports safe motherhood initiatives worldwide.
After traveling and working in Africa, Mexico and Nepal, the founders of MAHENDI become acutely aware of the maternal health risks facing women worldwide. With a belief that a safe pregnancy and childbirth is a universal human right, their hope is to become the symbol of safe motherhood worldwide. A portion of MAHENDI’s net proceeds go to global maternal health and neonatal initiatives.
The MAHENDI logo is at the heart of each of their designs and was adapted from an ancient symbol of protection. Throughout history, women painted sacred talisman on their bodies to protect themselves from harm during pregnancy and childbirth. The MAHENDI symbol reflects their commitment to safeguarding women and infants. The four points of the symbol represent clarity, wisdom, strength and grace – a mantra reflecting the philosophy and values behind the MAHENDI brand.
