Named after a hamlet in the vibrant state of Rajasthan, India, Siyana is an ode to the ancestral village of the brand’s founder. Siyana seeks to nurture and encourage the individuality and craftsmanship of India’s indigenous artisans while working with contemporary ideas. The result is a fine work of wearable art that caters to a universal palate. Individually handcrafted, each of Siyana's products can be traced to a personal journey of its artisans from distinct parts of the country.

About the Designer
Megha Shah is a fashionista at heart and entrepreneur by choice with a keen interest in textiles, particularly those that blend Indian aesthetics with contemporary designs. After acquiring an MBA in Entrepreneurship and Family Business Management from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) and gaining experience in the business development aspect of her family business, Megha moved to London to pursue a career in the ethical fashion space.
Her commitment to encourage local Indian craftsmanship and organic products ensure that Siyana London adheres to traditional and environmentally conscious methods of weaving and dyeing. When she isn’t hosting pop-ups around London town, Megha is either sniffing for new herbs to add to her kitchen garden or whipping up a recently-googled dish that could use a generous sprinkling of the garden-fresh thyme.
