Injiri, meaning “real India”, references a historical textile trade that exported to West Africa in the 18th century. Inspired by this cultural heritage, Chinar Farooqi launched the Injiri clothing brand in 2009. Rooted in the beauty of hand-weaving processes and centered around story-telling, the brand focuses on textile development and sustainable usage of materials. Traditional craft and handloom techniques are cleverly reimagined in contemporary silhouettes for a global customer.
The Injiri Story Celebrates a Fabric of Life
Each textile possesses a unique code or language pertaining to the geographical location where it was made. The Injiri story celebrates a fabric of life, from the cultural history to the design's inception; the very fibers of each yarn to the beautiful hand-made garment available now to you.
