What inspired us to brand ourselves as “Manjal”?
“Manjal” translates to both “Turmeric” and as well the color “Yellow”.
Yellow is the most gleaming of all the colors of the spectrum, therefore, capturing our attention more than any other color. Yellow is the color of happiness, brightness and of sunshine.
Apart from the visual and aesthetic appeal, turmeric, also known in India as haldi, is a most commonly used spice in South Asian cooking. Women use it to get a glowing and radiant skin. It is also used in most of the traditional Indian weddings as part of many rituals. Turmeric also has antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Food, Health, Beauty, and more importantly, Happiness – it is an essential component for an everyday life! The essence of the name exactly denotes the concept of our boutique.
Manjal Couture aims to provide our customers with one-of-a-kind clothing they can adore and comfortably wear for any occasion and be a part of their everyday life.
