MANDALA was founded in 2000 by Nathalie Prieger in Munich. Prior to that, in her position as head designer for MCM, Nathalie had become aware of how production costs were being pressed downwards for more profit in sales. She decided not to support this business practice ethically any longer and quit her job. An extended stay in India not only made her realize her love for country and Yoga but also to integrate her two passions into MANDALA.
Yoga was hardly known in Germany at that time; yet in North America, the first Yoga Fashion labels had already been founded, convincing Nathalie to establish her own Yoga Fashion label. Although sustainable sports fashion was still in its infancy, Nathalie held on to her idea, fought against all odds and managed to build up a thriving brand in a matter of years that became well-known to all Yoginis, especially in German-speaking countries. Currently, MANDALA can be found at approx. 180 points of sale worldwide.
