About us

Indigene is a conscious clothing label from Delhi, India. An open closet with stories untold. One that speaks of and for artisans across geographies, of consumers who know how it feels to pay it forward. Lending it form, shape and accent are its storytellers, designers Ruchi Tripathi and Jaya Bhatt, textile design graduates from Delhi’s National Institute of Fashion Technology - India's premier design school.
Indigene started with a passion for all things handmade. Translating traditional handcraft techniques into contemporary aesthetics and styling. Lending a new perspective to  “made by hand”—and turning it into a larger, yet deeply personal statement. Indigene clothing is simple, modest yet stylish, keeping the strong essence of handcraft and fine detailing together, appealing to anyone who is experimental, creative and not bound by social norms and brackets. The Indigene woman is independent and free thinking.
Indigene takes great pride in its family of highly skilled artisans and workers involved at several stages of creation. Following an ethical supply chain, each Indigene product goes through several hands and geographies transforming into a compilation of stories.
