Traditionally the practice of using thread-work to embellish the garments in India found its patrons in royalty moving away from the villages where the craft was essentially born and now its trending the runways across the world. Meet Mohammad Ali and Mukeen who helped us in reviving the pristine craft of thread-work and filigree embroidery. We feel grateful that we could bring their art and passion to light with IMAIMA's unique creations. Across the globe the wearers of IMAIMA can flaunt that their garments come from the rich craftsmen of India.

MANJU & RAJNI
Create, Nurture, Transform

We at IMAIMA believe in empowering women. Our aim was to create employment in the local regions in India where men and women work together. Our ladies are equal bread-winners of the family. Their devotion and hard-work enables their children to attend school. Their finesse in giving the final touch to the garment is the most crucial part of the process. Their quality-check is the essence of IMAIMA's unique garments. Manju (right) and Rajni (left) joined us in 2018. Manju lives with her husband and two children - a girl and a boy and Rajni with her husband and two children - a girl and a boy. We salute Manju and Rajni for their endless efforts to maintain quality checks at home and at IMAIMA.
