Our Journey

Amehndi was founded by Ms Amrit Nagi for whom growing up in an Asian household, weddings of all sizes and cultures were an integral part of her life. From the lavish decorative centrepieces to the intricately designed outfits, Amrit always treasured the nuances of a each couple’s special day and often found herself embroiled in the preparation process in one way or another.


Drawing from her Indian heritage, Amrit developed a passion for the age old art of Mehndi (henna) which over the years she diligently sought to perfect. Amrit eventually had the lightbulb moment of transposing these beautiful and unique designs onto candles of all sizes using acrylic paint to produce Amehndi's flagship product, unique eye catching decorative candles. 


Amrit's hand crafting ability and attention to detail has quickly expanded the use of Mehndi and Mehndi inspired designs onto other items such as plates and digital content, perfect as beautiful gifts or as decorative pieces for the home. 

Over time, Amrit who is also a keen crochet enthusiast has expanded the Amehndi collection to include beautiful hand made crocheted apparel with the same level of attention to detail and passion afforded to Amehndi's flagship candles. 

Amehndi has also recently ventured into one of a kind hand-drawn digital paintings which are entirely customisable and embody the personal touch which we at Amehndi hold dear to our hearts.
