Hand in hand with India’s state emporiums
Vast like the Indian landscape, our handmade heritage is diverse, spanning small clusters that are almost invisible and inaccessible to a large chunk of our population. The talented artisans often battle challenges from not just fast fashion trends, but also from a lack digital knowledge and awareness. Hand in hand with India’s state emporiums, Amazon offers thousands of weavers and artisans a single platform to showcase their handmade heritage and reach the world’s biggest network of sellers and consumers in an instant.
The effect is manifold. Artisans get an authentic platform with fair prices, and they also get a medium to revive dying art forms by way of digital storytelling and various initiatives of state emporiums. Consumers, on the other hand, are always assured of affordable and authentic products that can be accessed virtually in any part of the world via Amazon Global Selling. Further, the folklores and tales connected to these artefacts are retained through unique campaigns like Amazon Story Boxes and Share the Craft, enabling forward and backward integration.
As we celebrate Indian handmade products, together with state emporiums, we are humbled to enable these marvels to reach Indian and global consumers and celebrate the spirit of Bharat. Visit our store showcasing selection by Government Emporiums.
