MARGN by Ranjit and Saurabh Maurya

Imagining an undefined interpretation of world, MARGN attempts to create artful clothes with an emphasis on layering, handmade crafts, human body and symbolisms. The brand propels age-old craft techniques moulded to deliver contemporary conceptual garments driven by functionality that is limitless in terms of reasoning, gender and conditioning.

"When Margn was born, we never perceived gender as its defining factor. Everyone belongs here. This is a thought we hope to see for our new world; a world unified by greater understanding amongst its beings."

Mini Interview with Ranjit and Saurabh Maurya

Your garments are driven by functionality that is limitless in terms of reasoning, gender and conditioning. What are the other inspirations for your creations?
As designers, we are observant of our surroundings, because almost anything, no matter how seemingly insignificant, can ignite an idea. A simple conversation between two individuals is enough to spark inspiration. We created the Margn World based on the premise of ‘What ifs’. What if the world were upside down, what if humans had a different shape and form, what if every being lived harmoniously despite differences. The core of Marg lies within human bonds, beyond physical differences and societal divides. We try to see smaller things around us, as well as larger social and environmental issues through Margn’s lens, and translate what we see into our collections.

What are the stories you would like to share with your customers behind each unisex creation?
Growing up, the idea of wearing ‘gender-appropriate’ clothing was ingrained into our brains. I was constantly questioned for my clothing choices, not only by society but even by near and dear ones. ‘Why shouldn’t we have the freedom to express ourselves through clothing, without feeling like we don’t belong?’ When Margn was born, we never perceived gender as its defining factor. Everyone belongs here. This is a thought we hope to see for our new world; a world unified by greater understanding amongst its beings.
