We are a family, who have been into Henna Business for the last 4 generations. Earlier the henna was produced in the out skirts of Delhi in place called Faridabad, Haryana. This place was known the world over as the best source of quality henna. Due to urbanization, the land was converted from fields into colonies and as such the production of henna was shifted to Sojat in Rajasthan, where climatic conditions similar to Faridabad exist. Sojat produces the largest quantity of the finest quality henna in terms of colour and conditioning both for use in India & abroad. Incidentally, henna is produced in limited quantities only in few other countries like Sudan, Yemen, Pakistan, Egypt & Iran and as such India is the biggest source of henna for the world.
