For Badass Brown Women Worldwide

The modern South Asian woman is bold, fierce and unapologeticly herself. Our work is inspired by the experiences of women of color, celebrating the strength and empowerment of our sisters worldwide


South Asian women face a vast range of challenges and barriers - often behind closed doors, without realising so many others are going through the exact same thing.

Our mission is to collectively own our experiences, and to bring these unspoken issues to light.  Through our art,  apparel and articles, uplifting and embracing what it means to be an badass woman of colour is what we're all about.

This stuff was so cool to see! Being a young, Indian female and currently getting a degree in Asian Studies, focusing on Southern Asia, I was so ecstatic to see art such as this. It has so many modern themes mixed with keeping one’s culture alive. I love it!!!


This is so perfect. I can’t wait to show it off!! Love the designs, they’re so perfect for young desis.
