Prama Bhardwaj, Founder & CEO Mantis World, has lived between Kenya, Tanzania, India and the UK. She studied Development Economics for her Master’s degree, with a focus on development in Africa. Prama is a board member of the Ethical Fashion Forum and the Textile Exchange – both organisations dedicated to transforming social and environmental standards in the fashion industry. Prama has spoken on sustainable textile manufacturing at locations around the world.

In 2000, Prama founded Mantis World: an award-winning supplier of sustainably sourced “blank” clothing to the imprintables market.

Mantis World demonstrates the success of their triple bottom line model – commercial, volume manufacturing in an ethical and sustainable manner.
