India is a land of motley arts and traditions. You would get to see different forms of arts/traditions in villages separated by just a few kilometers. These artisans, however, are losing out to the marketing blitzkrieg of modern corporates.
Indha (a child of Literacy India) has set out to change this scenario and is providing rural women with employment opportunities by helping them sell their traditional items. It has a strong vision of helping these women become independent and they are doing a great job at it. But how do they reach out to potential customers – here they are ultra modern and are using internet to sell the wares 🙂
India Shops Online
Indians have their peculiarities and explicit requirements with regards to internet shopping. The Internet has changed the manner in which we shop and the interaction of web based shopping is gradually moving into India. From garments to basic food items, to more, the Indians are acquiring interest in the idea of internet shopping. And Indha is using this trend to promote local artisans with amazing handmade products.
Of course, there is a strong philanthropic angle to Indha but leaving that aside; Indha sports a wide range of products. One thing that we can conclude is – everything here is unique its own way – as they are all handmade, authentic and you wouldn’t really find it on other shopping sites. Indha products range from home furnishing, home decor, office supplies to men’s and women’s apparels.
After contemplating on buying everything or staying on budget, despite the bare minimum price range offered by them, we ordered a few items from Indha. Let us give you the review of the products that we bought.
What Did We get?
Denim Backpack Bag
When we say Denim never goes out of fashion, we always mean it. And this handmade denim bag from Indha proves our statement. The embroidery on the bag gives a quirky vibe to the bag. It has a zipper compartment, well padded shoulder straps, and space enough to carry all the essentials. All in all, this denim bag is a perfect choice for a small yet handy backpack.
Jhola bags are back in fashion, and we don’t regret having them back. They’re reusable, can carry much more weight compared to plastic bags, are quirky enough for instagram aesthetics and handy enough for your next grocery shopping. We are in love with this jhola bag from Indha! And so will you be!
