ABOUT US

As modernity sets in, bringing in its wake, an influx of cultural and social changes, bulwarking social status and power became the putative purpose for the existence of fashion. The sartorial assets, lovingly left to us by our ancestors, sit at the back of our closets, gathering dust, evanescing, while our latest and most luxurious conquest gets the place of honour. It is not wrong to choose fashion as a means to claim our status in society, but its terribly sad to do it at the expense of forsaking one's own tradition and culture. What we could do, rather, is try and change the ephemeral nature of fashion by using the timeless beauty of indigenous textiles.


Khumanthem is a fashion brand, established in the year 2014, aiming for luxury end of the market. The brand's pledge is to establish lasting relationships with its clients by not only supplying high quality, one of a kind statement pieces, but also by engaging them with the beautiful ancient culture of the North-East. Indigenous handloom and handicraft is the backbone of the brand.

Testimonials

Every time I visit Imphal, I cannot resist visiting Kumanthem...In my opinion, how to mix tradition and modernity has always been a debate and a challenge for many designers and artists around the globe, but I really like the way Khumanthem is doing it, utilising a lot of historic motifs and fabrics, yet they look so natural, stylish and comfortable that emphasise a woman’s elegance.
...I feel Khumanthem send us a strong message: ethics, sustainability and fashion can go together in Manipur and the Northeast!
