The designs at Prathaa are wearable as well as stylish. The apparel incorporates the qualities of women of today and showcases her confidence and beauty with the Indian feel.

Prathaa believes that every woman is unique, and therefore the brand keeps an eye for detailing, finishing, and quality, ensuring perfection in their outfit. Rather than just being a trend follower, this brand emphasizes the quality, celebrates the uniqueness of the fabrics used and the stories behind them .
The brand firmly believes that fashion is an integrated voice of a generation that sometimes speaks the language of style or colour. Apart from everything, what everyone looks for in an attire is comfort, and at Prathaa, designs are incorporated in an outfit without compromising comfort.
Since India, like other countries, is focusing on sustainable fashion, Prathaa also focuses on doing the same, along with creating wealth for the artists at the grassroots like the weavers, karigars, and artisans making a positive difference in their lives.
Prathaa as a brand has a purpose of treading lightly and leaving a small carbon footprint.
