Bandhini is a seed grown from a small pod & kept special by our close-knit ties since 1993. Our favourite things are what nature gives—from trees, cocoons & seeds.

Family is important to us. Bandhini was founded by the joining of 2 families from across the globe, the Schafflers and the Narains. Mithoo and Sweety and their sons Sharan and Karan continue to work together with Tai and the Bandhini Australia team—creating unique one of a kind designs inspires by culture and nature.
