About

Hi,
This is my 'collective' shop.
We are 10 members in our family involved in our small handicraft business. Each person is specialist in one or another product and field. I am good embroidery artist. I have 1 younger brother who is helping me in listing products and packing and shipping process. My wife is very good in recycling vintage sarees and making nice quilted scarves and bedspreads. My mother is specialist in shawls and scarves. My uncle looks after hand block printing and then my uncle's daughter use that printed fabric to make nice harem pants, tops and many other garments. I have 2 sisters who do all the stitching in our house and my uncle's 2 daughters are doing beautiful embroidery.

All our family members got this art in heritage but…

All our family members got this art in heritage but our sister took proper training by learning the art in art school.

My uncle is illiterate but he is God gifted talented person and is very experienced. After my father passed away 6 years back, he took all the responsibility of his and our our family. He helped us to take good education and along with that gave us training in art schools too so that we could polish our art that we have in blood hereditary.

Etsy is the only online place where I am selling my products. I came to know about it by a Australian tourist who by chance visited our small house. She saw our art work and fall in love with our products. Then she gave me an idea to sell my products on etsy as they help artist sell their artwork directly to customers. She also taught me how to do this. And here I am with so many beautiful products from my family.

Thanks to Etsy to provide such a nice platform for us to showcase our products.
