Our Story

Zindagi जिंदगी : Zin-di-gee

Designer | Curator

María José Padgett

I was born and raised in Honduras with a passion for travel and exploring unknown places. Eager to learn about people and traditions around the world, I moved to Dallas to study Markets & Culture at Southern Methodist University. In 2014, love took me to India where I instantly lost my heart to its gorgeous scenery, endless traditions and gracious people. I continue to explore the country's beauty and unmatched craftsmanship to celebrate the richness of India through our culture and tradition inspired pieces. 

 

The love and passion I have for my company and products are about what they represent: a culture, endless traditions, and a level of craftsmanship that is so foreign to what I grew up with. Those factors fuel my life. I love India, because seeing distant places and meeting incredible people, so different to me, have made me grow and realize how terribly lame our world would be without all its beautiful diversity. I grow outside my comfort zone.
