About

Celebrating India's arty, ethnic fashion & decor- Artikrti.

Our Purpose

India is a fascinating confluence of people, places, and practices. Sights, sounds and song. Colors, culture and couture.

To some it is a cocktail of folklore, festival and food. Mantra, myths and mystique. Tradition, tantra and trigonometry.

To others it is an eclectic canvas of art, ahimsa and allure. Heritage, history and holiness. Philosophy, prayer and purity. Enigma, enlightenment and the erotic.

India is all this and more.

Artikrti was born to celebrate this psychedelic mix- through India’s art, craft and ethnic chic.

Our mission is to take this diversity of India and get the world outside to experience it. Add a shade of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.

If you are reading this, thank you. We feel humbled by your interest. Like all Indians, we believe, being a host is a privilege that the guest blesses the host with.

Hope you do come again. And you may want to check out our website as well www.artikrti.com

"Vanakkam" or "Namaskaar", as they greet friends and guests in India. Putting together your palms, facing each other in a slightly cone like shape, chest high and the finger tips just below chin level, is the welcome gesture that accompanies the "Vanakkam". Add on a pleasant smile. You then have India's classic welcome ensemble.
Artikrti is all about India's art, craft and couture. The name stems from the Sanskrit word 'krti' meaning 'creation'. So Artikrti really means 'artistic creation'. We are so glad that you have taken the time to get to know us better. We are hoping we will be able to build relationships with people like you and share with you the many splendours of India's art and craft. While we do have a commercial goal, we believe what we have to share with you will truly enrich you as a person. And it will provide our group of artists and craft persons a global platform to showcase their art and have a measure of commercial gain.
And by doing this we hope to build bridges between different cultures and share our riches [metaphorically speaking:)] and be more connected in spirit, in today's technologically connected world.
"Nalvaravvu"- as they say in Tamil, a language down South in India. It means "May your visit bring happiness to the both of us".

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
CREDIT CARDS & PAYPAL & ETSY GIFT CARDS.

ALL THESE ARE ACCEPTED. YOU MAKE THE CHOICE.

As an Etsy Seller from Canada, the Etsy checkout process is set for collection of HST/GST as per Canada's requirement.

For all other countries, we do not collect any taxes.
We also do not collect any customs duties that may or may not be applicable for each country based on type of product.
Shipping
We will use Canada Post, who in turn will get to rely on USPS in the US and their corresponding postal brother organizations of each country for internal deliveries.
We believe this to be the most economical and viable method of reaching this to you, without you having to 'break the piggy bank' on courier charges.
If however, you do need this overnight or urgently for an occasion, do contact us and we can work out the best way to do that and get your approval on the extra costs involved. We promise to revert on your queries with the same sense of urgency.
We will take utmost care in packing your purchases properly and also ensure that it gets shipped out within 24 hours of receipt of payment [unless of course, if it is the weekend].
And all of this is written with a spirit of respect for you as a partner contributing to Artikrti's wellbeing. Hence, if you would like any modus operandi which is different, please explain your need to us and we hope to be able to address that need.
Refunds and Exchanges
Sorry, we don't accept returns, except, as explained below.

Our assurance to you as our well-wisher and buyer: we will only sell those products that authentically represent the art or craft that is core to a practice in India. And we will only sell those that are 100% of good quality. That is an Artikrti assurance.
In everyday life we are consumers, just like you. And a key Indian philosophy is a saying that has an English equivalent- "You reap what you sow". So we will never lead anyone to believing anything by misrepresenting things.
So what leaves Artikrti are pieces of craftsmanship which are 100% of good quality. Given that Artikrti is not some mass producing factory, we will find it hard to be able to support any random returns. We hope you are able to understand this.
We will provide enough number of pictures for you to get a visual feel and also give a detailed graphic description of the product, to give you the 'touch and feel', to buy with informed confidence. We urge you to look at all the pictures and the accompanying description.
Having said this, if however for some humanitarian reason, you are unable to use the product or unable to gift it to the person whom you intended it for in the first place, because of a change in circumstance, please reach out to us [within seven days from the date of delivery] and we hope to be able to handle such cases in an amicable fashion. We will honestly, be flexible in our approach on this. And in such cases, we are sure you understand, that the product should be absolutely unused and must be in the same pristine condition it was, when we shipped it out to you.
