Ikai, in Hindi, means ‘one’ and the name symbolises strength of the singular self-expression, fierce femininity and empowerment. Ragini Ahuja established Ikai to translate these values into wearable art in 2012. The brand creates practical and timeless clothing adorned with Ahuja’s eccentric artworks and illustrations. Ikai converts indigenous Indian textiles with exquisite appliqué and hand-done shibori to craft global artisanal clothing. The brand’s fearless use of leather, tribal inspirations and unconventional textures are what Ahuja calls “calm rebellion”, the simple act of transforming the traditional for an individual’s strong expression. Each piece of clothing is versatile, hand-crafted with modern tailoring and uncompromising quality. The brand embraces mindful and contemplative design - handmade and sustainable.
