Creating experiences for our family of artisans
Our community is our backbone with whom we have built Sangraha as brand over the past 6 years. It is our vision to improve the quality of life and achieve inclusive growth for everyone associated with us. Growth is not mere economic sustenance rather engagement in design process, narrative and strategic planning.
As a testament to this, Sangraha is the first brand in the Chikankari cottage industry to offer medical insurance to all artisans, include signature of artisans in products, invest in education of artisans, benchmark wages in multiples prevailing market standards, co-create products with vernacular sensibility- the creating own benchmark for human rights in the workplace.
An experience called Sangrahaness
At the heart of Sangrahaness, are seven pillars—Truthfulness, Pioneering Innovation, Excellence, Cultural Responsibility, Social Cohesion, Vernacular Sincerity and Sensorial Experience that holds this unique concept of handcrafting higher than all others.
