Lekha founder Trishala Bhansali was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, but spent summers with her family in Mumbai, roaming fabric stalls and creating her own clothes as early as age 13. She started Lekha in the spring of 2018 out of a desire to be more connected with both her hometown of New Orleans and her Indian heritage.
