For designer Stella Simona, Haati Chai has been a narration of her heritage, culture, and her journey to self discovery. As the daughter of East Indian immigrants, Stella realized at a young age her background was unique. Although Stella lived in the US her entire life, she was constantly connected to her native roots by her grandmother, Annie. Her grandmother traveled back to Bangladesh and India regularly and brought Stella pieces of their heritage to hold dear forever. Haati Chai was established in 2011 from Stella’s desire to fill a void for heirloom jewelry and rebirthed in 2014 when she became partners and joined forces with Ali Heiss.
