Nirali Rangwala, an Indian milliner and rare of its kind. Holding a graduate degree in Systems and Aerospace engineering from Cornell University; I often tend to stick to the nerdy side of my brain. After all, Millinery is purely engineering, just glamorous! Being raised in Louisville, home to the renowned Kentucky derby, my obsession for hats soon made me learn the art of millinery. Hailing from the culture rich country of India, my heart goes out to see various Indian art forms losing their legacy.
"Maaneh" is a word of Sanskrit origin that portrays an expensive piece of jewellery that can boost your poise. Millinery being a vintage art form and so are the art forms from India, Maaneh was born to club the two in appreciation of the artisans spanning to smallest villages across the country.
I handcraft each one-of-a-kind hat and celebrate style in an authentic way. With the hope to preserve traditions yet modernize the art in a chic way is Maaneh's promise. Yayy, Nay, Wow, Whoaa, Awww, Eww or even Psttt; please feel free to drop in a line and I would love to hear from you.
