A young, original product design and art company, Ajji was founded by Lekha Washington with one central mission- to create products and experiences that had never been done before.
The very core of Ajji is sustainable innovation- one great idea seeding another and so on. This is important because it allows concept driven products to find the time and space to be prototyped to perfection and then finally produced.
At Ajji, quality production meets a great “What if”.
In a little over three years, Ajji has grown in leaps and bounds, with several patents, magazine covers and awards to its credit, entirely on the strength of the idea.
Having shown from New York to Germany, Ajji would like to focus on bringing it’s unique brand of original, functional art to the global market as well as developing a thriving space for itself in India.
About Lekha Washington
Self taught as a sculptor, Lekha had her first solo art show at an early age of 18 years. Since then, she has been working consistently towards pushing the bar in the fields of art, product design and performance.
Armed with a dual degree of lifestyle product design and film direction, Lekha graduated with honors from the prestigious National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad.
Keenly interested in being on the other side of the camera, Lekha’s acting career took off soon after, with lead roles in several languages.
Her passions were two-fold and continued to evolve as she created several pieces of art and design parallel to her busy acting schedule.
Lekha Washington founded “Ajji- The Odd Product Company” in 2013 to constantly support innovation and original design.
She has since won several accolades in three different fields.
Lekha is the poster child of wearing multiple hats and creating strong cross-disciplinary projects.
