THE STORY

Truly French, and Parisians at heart, Danielle and Chloé Le Bonnois, mother and daughter, are passionate about travelling and textile. They have been creating a collection of rich unique textiles since their first trip to India in 1998 – when they fell in love with the country and all its facets: the rich traditions that go back thousands of years, the people and their remarkable heritage of craftsmanship. 

After travelling across India, the pair returned home to France to create their own exclusive brand - “NANA KI”. Nana Ki began with a small, beautifully decorated, pink boutique in the famous Parisian neighborhood of Saint Germain des Prés. Bringing to Paris a select range of traditional Indian products with a contemporary edge, Nana ki soon became wildly popular. 

In 2005, Chloe became the mother to the delightful Lola, who was born in New Delhi. The concept of “Lola’s World” boutique, dedicated to the universe of the child, was born with her.

 In October 2006, Danielle and Chloe opened the now famous “Lola’s World” boutique, the very first mother and children concept store in New Delhi. The idea was simple yet genius: bringing together the universe of Nana Ki, from the babies and kids collections, women fashion and accessories collections, along with a luxurious selection of other international brands and local finds within the spacious 2000 Sq Feet pink store, in the heart of Delhi’s Hauz Khas Village.

In 2009, after the birth of her second child and with  “Lola’s World” establishing itself in Delhi's retail sphere, the Parisian duo set out on another challenge to open a new space. The concept was to create a new frame for Nana Ki’s universe… but withthe feet in the sand! And in December, “The Shop by Nana Ki”in Goa was launched. Delighted clients discovered the beach-y side to Nana Ki, with sophistiacted collections created of light natural fabrics in loose fits presented under the magical roof of a Maharaja tent.

THE NANA KI WORKSHOP

Nana Ki founders, Chloé and Danielle, have a keen eye for and lay great emphasis on quality, which eventually led to the opening of their own production unit where every item could be created under their watchful eye and direct supervision. 

The workshop emerged after a meeting with a charismatic Indian woman, Ritu Jain, who appreciated the pair’s requirement for quality and who was personally excited to redirect her vast textile knowledge to a new project. Ritu is now a Partner at Nana ki and heads the production unit, while also assisting in the design process by offering her Indian aesthetics, elemental to the Nana Ki collections.

Quality at Nana Ki begins with using only the finest natural material that is respectful of the traditional craftsmanship, while being mindful of the working conditions of everyone involved in the creation of each piece. Nana Ki always employs and collaborates with the most skilled craftsmen. 

Their Delhi workshops produces carefully stitched and finished pieces, where everything is checked with meticulous attention given to the smallest details.The brand’s credo lays strong emphasis on faire trade values and employs only environmentally friendly techniques and natural materials, as much as possible. 

What sets this brand apart, is that it exalts and employs the very roots of Indian textile traditions, weather it is Benares woven ultra thin mulmul cottons, Jaipur block printed fabrics or leharia and bandani dyeing, hand-made Chikan embroidery from Lucknow, Kashimiri hand-spun, hand-woven pashminas and other treasures of Indian textiles. 

This little family-run workshop has now been in operation for almost 10 years now and remains successful in New Delhi’s changing times and volatile economy.
