Our journey as ‘Chanakya’ began in Mumbai, India, nearly three long decades ago. Established in 1984 as an export house for embroideries; garments; and accessories, we grew as a design think-tank and creators of international couture and prêt-à-porter.
Over the years, our leaning and passion for surface ornamentation has evolved into our speciality. It lies in the very essence of Chanakya to create exquisitely embellished garments and accessories, showcasing ...
breathtaking hand-crafted embroideries and innumerable other techniques.
Our strength lies in our focus on research and our passion for excellence. It has enabled us to work with some of the finest and most reputed international fashion houses; lending our expertise to create designs, styles, and techniques that define them.Creating timeless elegance and perfection for over twenty years.
Always at the forefront of innovation, we have keenly sought to learn from and adapt India’s rich craft legacy to international fashion. A harmonious blend of tradition and modernity allows us to create designs and trends that capture the pulse of the global fashion industry. Today, Chanakya is a leader in the export market. We have grown tremendously and evolved to become a creative powerhouse.
Our operations have also expanded geographically into Italy. Located in Bologna, our Italian office houses not only a highly skilled and experienced client servicing team but also a showroom that offers clients an extensive archive of designs, styles, vintage finds, and a treasure trove of inspiration.
