Rachna & Ruchika
Rachna Kumar dreamed of being a doctor, then spent a decade as a software engineer before deciding it was time to pursue her ichcha—her wish. That wish involved teaming up with her sisters Ruchika, who has degrees in textile design and block printing, and Monika, an expert in conscious practice, to create a line of socially aware handmade products that they hope will truly make a difference.
