"we, over the last 8 years, have been able to acquire the reputation of an organization for providing sustained income for artisans while catering to markets across india. our model is based on innovations in using traditional handmade, hand-block printed fabrics and turning them into contemporary designs. our designs ensure the styling is fresh & unique, yet has a hint of yesteryear elegance."
