You know that feeling you get when a hitchhiker thanks you for the ride, or when it is 5 pm on a Friday ? That's "Feeling Good." We asked ourselves what can we do to feel that way more often. The answer was surprisingly simple - create something that makes both us and the people who use our products "Feel Good". That's Maanja's raison d'être.
We set out to create socks that are simple and discreetly vibrant. We brought together delightful colours, inspiring design and the finest of materials to craft a collection of socks that are revised multiple times a year.
The quality of cotton and the elastic component determines the overall quality of the socks. We use only combed cotton yarn of the highest quality in every pair of Maanja socks.
What's in the name
Maanja is inspired by the term Manjha, the process of adding vigor and color to kite strings.
There isn't an inspiration greater than making something people want to fall in love with. That’s why I decided to start Maanja offering socks exclusively on our store to fans across India.
Entrepreneurship is my passion. It gives me the freedom to do what I love – read books, travel places, afternoon naps, watch cricket, and most importantly create things people love.
I am an engineer (obviously?!) from BITS; I worked in the IT industry and then went on to do my MBA from the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad. It is somewhat true that I wouldn't do any of those given a second chance. I would start up straight after high-school.
