We are a close-knit team made up of craftspeople, artists, designers, photographers and creative minds. Our aim is to dress up spaces with simple, handcrafted and sustainable décor elements and embrace the connection felt in owning a unique item made using centuries old techniques by an individual which has an increasing value in our fast-paced world.
WHAT WE DO
Working collaboratively with local artisans and artists from India we produce timeless collections of object that are natural, sustainable, functional and have high aesthetic value. Gaining a deep understanding of the techniques and processes of each craft is fundamental to our design process.
Our role is to act as a bridge between traditional crafting communities and an audience who value authentic goods sustainably produced. And with a designer's eye and years of expertise in this field we work together to update shapes, introduce contemporary color palettes and focus on the finer details to create a fusion between age-old tradition and modernity.
We not only focus on the aesthetic value of the product but also on the material used in making the products and it should pass our sustainability standards to make it to our stores. We keep absolute transparency in the ingredients used, process of making and the source of the materials.
Through our design ideology , we aim to elevate your everyday spaces , allowing you to adopt a conscious and minimal lifestyle . We detach ourselves from thoughtless consumerism and focus on high quality which can be cherished for long .
Our Philosophy is simple , we make products that are designed to last, not trend-driven, inspired by natural design and materials, and influenced by the history and culture we grew up in and still have a global appeal.
We believe in handmade; perfectly imperfect wares crafted slowly from natural materials locally sourced. Our aim is to elevate the status of artisanal craft and those who produce it and improve the living and working conditions of our partners.
