About Us

Welcome to “UZAZI”… it means “Motherhood” in the beautiful Swahili language of Eastern Africa.

Until recently, maternity wear in India was limited to large sized clothing that ended up being poor fits. A new suave woman of today and a mom herself, Minal Joshi wondered how to bridge this gap between fashion and affordable maternity wear in India.

Serving a decade in garment manufacturing for domestic and export markets, through private label and contract manufacturing, meant a high level of expertise for such a brand new and bold venture. In 2006, Minal decided to launch her own maternity wear brand in India named “UZAZI”.

UZAZI is the first and also the leading brand of maternity wear in India today… a brand inspired by nature’s own symbol of “eternal creation”, the Nautilus Shell!  The Nautilus shell, lined with mother-of-pearl, grows into increasingly larger chambers through its life span, a symbol of expansion and renewal. Dating back to Hindu mythology, the Nautilus Shell was mentioned as a symbol of creation and of the inner beauty of nature, making it a fitting metaphor to the journey of motherhood, a journey from ‘me’ to ‘us’.

UZAZI represents today’s modern woman, who seeks to create a perfect balance in her life. Homemakers and professionals alike, the modern Indian woman juggles housework, chores, meetings, conferences, quality time for her family and most importantly, for herself. Amidst this busy schedule, motherhood and its journey brings in a delightful shift in priorities. The baby and her own comfort suddenly become all important.
