About Us

Who are we?

WEkigai is a small family owned company. It is owned and run by wife-husband couple Shrivalli Bhat and Narasimha Shastri. We have background in science and engineering and use it to make everyday life a bit easier, healthier and happier for ourselves and hopefully for you.

Where are we?

We are based in the Netherlands and offer our products mainly in EU, UK and USA.

How did we start?

A lot of companies start in a garage, but we started in our kitchen. Our first product LoafNest was born out of our own family's endeavor to eat healthy and tasty everyday. Using our backgrounds, we created LoafNest in our kitchen. It makes breadmaking so easy that we thought there are others who will appreciate having one.

So, we went on Kickstarter to bring LoafNest to the world. And, as the cliché goes, the rest is history. Since then LoafNest and our other products have brought smiles on a lot of faces across the world.

What does WEkigai mean?

Our name is inspired by the Japanese concept of ikigai. As WEkigai, WE (the people of this company) strive to achieve our collective ikigai by creating useful, high quality products with the aim of achieving our mission, passion, profession and vocation.
