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.

Bonding Together with the Community

During the challenging time of Pandemic and the economic recession that followed, the team at Sangraha started a mission to support artisans in need. We didn't believe in giving donations nor the artisans found it dignified to get alms.

Sangraha started a project on Gift Economy to support the artisans in need to create mask

There for no limit to quantity, it was just created, distributed, purchased, gifted and the economy continued.

Starting from the first contribution of Rs 501, this project did not stop. There are more products, more artisans, more markets and many more social contributions.

Each atelier is a philosophy co-created by us with the artisans. Experiences and products may have variety but the principles and values bind us together.
