OUR STORY

Perfect combinations are rare in an imperfect world. Thankfully, there's Monsoon + Chai.

Monsoon + chai is all about savouring the present moment, here & now. Our inspiration is the moment of content that one feels when they savour the goodness of a hot cup of chai on a rainy day.  There is nothing quite like a freshly brewed cup of chai on a monsoon evening;  it’s one of those simple joys, enjoyed by the hard worker on the street as well as the tired housewife in her balcony - it is boundless and abundant. 

 

We are a home-grown label, a small business that began from a simple idea on a rainy evening in August 2020. Our founder, Manasvi Malik, a visual identity designer by profession and generally obsessed with scented candles, was experimenting with design language whilst enjoying the sound of rain with her evening chai, and in a serendipitous moment, she came up with Monsoon + Chai, a brand that sells organic scented soy candles. From there on, she worked to make this brand that only existed on an illustrator file, a reality and in October 2020, we launched our online shop and since then our #littlecandlecommunity has supported us and helped us build our label through every season, every collection and every hand-poured candle.
