After years of working in the fashion and gifting industry, I wanted to create my own brand that would make it easier for people to celebrate the simple things in life, and make them smile. I’m as guilty as anybody of getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and I think it is so important to stop and take a moment for yourself. From this new mission of mine, EKA was born. Inspired by Indian influences in my family, I absolutely love vibrant Eastern block printing and bold colours. I take scents and visual cues from all over the world to create EKA’s collection of customisable candles and gifts, all designed to evoke a unique feeling of happiness. Katie x
