Back in 2001 Anna Westcott, a free-spirited young lady with a passion for adventure and spirituality, was travelling around India, studying yoga and ancient healing arts. The people, the culture and the land inspired her deeply. There she spent much time by the ocean, under the stars and close to nature, enjoying the myriad of colours and textures India had to offer. During her stay she received the Sanskrit name ‘Sundari’ from her teacher, which means ‘beautiful’, and has been called this way ever since.
Gifted with great creativity and artistic skills, she started designing handbags and belt bags suitable to use when travelling, which would safely hold documents and could be worn around the waist or on the shoulder for security. She also created jewelry from hand-picked gems, which she inlaid with intentions and prayer, inspired by the sacred healing arts.
With a deep love and respect for the natural world, Sundari has been committed to using natural fabrics from the very start of her business. She had a passion for hemp material but it was very hard to find beautiful hemp clothing back then. As a result she created a label called ‘harmony’ that designed beautiful elegant hemp clothing suitable for everyday wear and ceremonies.
Over the years her label evolved into ‘Sundari’, an independent company designing fantastic eco-friendly clothes for movement, adventure and everyday life; clothes suitable for travelling, city life and being on the yoga mat; clothes that reflect her passion for life, nature, yoga and travel.
