Thenga is a homegrown brand from Kerala that repurposes coconut waste into lasting, sustainable and handmade home products. Ever wondered what 'Thenga' means? Thenga in Malayalam means coconuts! We are a small women-led start-up from Kerala, India - working on products made with discarded coconut shells. Now you can purchase our products hand-made in a small village in Kerala from anywhere in the world. Thank you for supporting our mission, and saving coconut shells from going to the landfill!
Thenga was founded by Maria Kuriakose, in August 2019. She was originally from Kerala, but migrated to Mumbai for higher studies and work. As she was working there, she felt the urge to return to her home-town and start a business that supports the agricultural sector of Kerala. She decided to zero-in on coconuts as that was the main agricultural crop in Kerala and the state was named after coconuts! Kera means coconuts, and Kerala is the land of coconuts.
