I (Dimple Sharma - eastindianexports.com) sell and personally craft 100% handmade ethnic items directly from local artisans in India that I commission using the practice of Fair Trade.
As the owner/artisan I deliberately work with marginalized Indian artisans in order to help them move from a position of vulnerability to security and economic self-sufficiency thus empowering them to become stakeholders in their own organizations
The pieces that you find on this site were either made by me or by the artisans I directly commissioned.
I actively support The Craft Revival Trust - www.craftrevival.org - and a portion of the proceeds from every piece you buy on my site goes directly to them.
The Craft Revival Trust. is a non profit organization that promotes and supports Indian artisans while focusing on reviving the dying and forgotten art of Indian handicrafts.
