take immense pride in their work, and would want it to last.  Materials and trims are hand-picked by the
individual craftsperson which no big manufacturing company can claim to do.Delight in these artistically designed lamps – made from wood, concrete and metal. And this unique crescent shaped fruit basket crafted from teak ply !

Reason # 5

You’re doing your bit for the environment.  Because handmade items aren’t made in a polluting, waste-
producing factory and shipped halfway around the world burning up huge amounts of fuel and energy.
Buying handmade and local products greatly reduces your carbon footprint on the world.

Go green this festive season with this truly inspired selection rafted from upcycled bottles, egg cartons, newspaper and more.

Reason # 6

You can create a unique connection with your artisan.  You can get to know about the person who made
the item with their own hands. It’s like the artist is sharing a part of himself with you – and you are
privileged to know the artist as well.
There’s a warm feeling that you get – knowing that you’ve made a difference to someone’s life. And
that you’ve helped support someone directly.   You don’t have to pay middlemen – and other levels of
people – it’s just about you and the creator of what you are buying !

Get ready to explore our festive handmade gifting options – for a wonderful and Green Diwali this year !
