Dear Patrons.

The world is in the midst of an unprecedented crisis. The pandemic has brought unimaginable challenges to our handloom industry which was already reeling under pressure from powerloom knockoffs. The only reason it sustained all these years is because of connoisseurs like you who value the heritage and craft of handloom weaving.

We request you to please buy, use, and promote handwoven sarees with a new vigour. Every handloom saree you purchase from our online store directly provides 2-3 weeks of livelihood to a weaver. Even a small purchase will go a long way in helping us support our weavers and our executives.

Handloom weaving is deeply rooted in our culture and it needs your support, now more than ever, to sustain itself.

Jai Hind
