Sanaya Set’s mission is deeply rooted in being champions for social justiceracial equality, gender equality, equal access to healthcare, and economic justice are a few examples. In parallel, Seattle founders Tarul Kode Tripathi, Sandy Mathews, and Tejal Angolkar believe self-care is critical to maintaining strength for this movement. This means being as kind to yourself as you are to others. To Sanaya Set’s founders, self-care means nourishing your mind, body and soul. 

The founders came together with a shared passion for intersectional feminism, social justice, style, and self-care. With great thought and care, they ensure each item in the collection aligns with the Sanaya Set mission. This is their passion project, born from a desire to find a greater purpose during these tumultuous times, not only for themselves, but for future generations.

How does the Sanaya Set Give Back?

The Sanaya Set gives back in multiple ways. In curating products, they focus on sourcing predominantly from women owned businesses, with an emphasis on businesses owned by women of color and/or women from marginalized communities. They also work with organizations and fair trade companies who elevate women globally and collaborate with like minded businesses who are committed to giving back to positively impact social justice.

Each season, they choose a charitable organization aligned with the mission to highlight and 10% of net proceeds from each set are donated to this organization.

Founders (L-R): Sandy Mathews, Tejal Angolkar, and Tarul Kode Tripathi.
