Pineapple Seed is a collaborative effort between Nathiya Prathnadi and her husband Soraj.
Nathiya Prathnadi’s imagination is driven by the pure wonder of her surroundings. Nature, history, art and faith inspire the shapes and symbols of her distinctive creations.
It was during an internship at a San Francisco product development firm that Nathiya began making jewelry, first for herself, then for family and friends. “Just a part time thing for fun,” she says. Soon it was apparent that she had a great passion – and a great talent – for it. The seed was planted. In 2004, with the encouragement of her family and friends, she launched her first collection. She chose the name Pineapple Seed (the pineapple represents friendship, charm and style).
Traveler-gardener-artist-photographer Nathiya has a fashion background and FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) degree. Soraj, who studied illustration, is a former graphic designer who now enjoys a career in high tech. Theirs is a harmonic partnership and a clear expression of their love and shared sensibility.
Today, Pineapple Seed has an enthusiastic following all over the world, and it’s easy to see why. Each style has a quiet allure that transcends trend and time and sparkles with the joyful, gentle spirit of its designer.
