An actor, sculptor and now a product designer, Lekha Washington has known creativity in its different forms. She started her foray into the arts while pursuing a degree in Fine Arts at Stella Maris College in Chennai. Washington later attended National Institute of Design pursuing a course in Lifestyle Product Design, which she would revisit with Ajji after her stint in front of the camera.

The philosophy at Ajji is to create pieces, which would have an instant visual impact. The brand belief is to create user driven products inspired by simplicity with a focus on originality using the raw materials of the highest quality that would inspire the customer.
