About Saanjh by Lea
Our introduction to all forms of traditional ethnicwear is deeply woven into the fabric of the relationships we have with the women in our lives. These women introduce us to the art of draping a saree, the beauty of a flowing sharara, the simplicity of a salwar kameez - they’re the ones who spark our love affair with these little pieces of history.
Saanjh is created for women who wish to honor that tradition while allowing their own personalities to shine through. First of its kind in the category, Saanjh offers a unique mix-and-match approach to ethnic wear that allows YOUR creativity to thrive. Our collection is made with the highest quality export surplus fabric ranging from beautiful matte stretch satins and silks to rich organzas and embroidered mesh.
All our styles are made to flatter more petite, curvy bodies found across the subcontinent, with trumpet, fit-and-flare, mermaid, and artfully draped silhouettes dominating the pack. We’ve delivered a new take on blouses by combining our signature boned corsetry technique with traditional silhouettes to create a category that combines traditional and modern dressing.
Meet our Founder
Lavanya Aneja is the founder and CEO of Lea Clothing Co. and Saanjh by Lea. A graduate from UCLA with a double major in Economics and Philosophy, Lavanya always wanted to go the entrepreneurship path after seeing her father build a successful garment export company from the ground up. Her motivation behind starting this clothing line was twofold—first, to build a sustainable (and affordable) fashion brand for Indian consumers, and second, to build a brand that would cater to women of all shapes and sizes and help them love their bodies.
On a normal day, you can find her with an oat milk latte in hand, buzzing about the office working with the design team, marketing team, and merchandising team. And of course, recording videos for Lea and Saanjh's social media!
