Store Utsav - Celebrate Art!

Hi! I am Rakhi from NOIDA, India. My shop Store Utsav (read: ootsav) is a creative den of Indian handmade art, craft, & fashion. An MBA and a writer by profession, my love of art (I like to paint), traveling, culture, & food, was simmering all the while to take shape. Eventually, in 2012, I came up with the concept of Store Utsav (www.storeutsav.com) and in July 2013 the venture began operations.

Utsav in Hindi language means festival and I 'celebrate' hand crafted art through my store. The logo uses 2 palms to reflect our essence of handmade, delivering human joys of creation. Hand chiseled jewelry, hand woven clothing, handcrafted décor pieces, and handmade festive decorative, I with my fellow shop members create these and more of such 'handful' delights for the art connoisseurs like you.

Store Utsav broadly has five-point policy:

1. All Handmade: Store Utsav is an Indian art & fashion house of everything handcrafted.
2. Social Responsibility: A part of earning per product goes towards the welfare of the underprivileged artists & artisans of my shop.
3. Buyer & Eco-Friendly Products: Madly in love with nature, hurting it is unthinkable for me. Therefore, a majority of my products are made mostly of natural raw-materials. Even if I employ something synthetic, I try my best to keep it safest possible for both the user and the environment.
4. Reviving & Proliferating Traditional Indian Art Forms: We follow the traditional methods of craft creation, which takes several days to months. Diluting the geographical boundaries through Etsy, I wish to deliver my attempt at recreating India's rich artistic legacy & aesthetic pleasure to every part of the world.
5. Earning: I try to earn some profit per sale to fuel further product making, creative experiments, exploration, and pay my bills :).

Today, my shop Store Utsav enjoys the love, support, and trust of patrons like you from across the globe. While my each artifact adds a classy grace to your living & work space and your celebrations, my fashion range of jewelry, apparel, & accessories redefine your style quotient. So, enjoy the imaginative leaps & the creative highs with Store Utsav. Happy Shopping! :)
