Partake India is inspired by the rich, timeless traditions of India, especially local artisans who have inherited their craft from generations gone by. We endeavour to do our part in enriching the lives of our extremely-talented artisans, who despite their skill and craft, still struggle to make ends meet and live a decent life. India is a country that has since time immemorial known to be rich in arts and crafts. Artisans are the backbone of the non-agricultural rural economy, and most of them are common folk, living below the poverty line. One of the biggest challenges of our time is to ensure that their skill, which is unique and invaluable in a sense, remains relevant and alive.
WELCOME TO PARTAKE INDIA
Our products are 100% handmade, sourced directly from local artisans across the country, each a reflection of its unique heritage.
The skill of India’s artisans has thrived through the ages infusing history and culture, and the quality of their craft speaks for itself.
The work of the artisan symbolizes the core values of our country – simple, colourful, divine and mystical.
THE ARTISAN AND US
Partake India promotes the local artisan and small entrepreneur by connecting them with buyers who are looking for something special, crafted with dignity and a human touch, and not something that’s machine-made or mass produced from a neighbouring country, but born out of creativity and soul.
We live in a time driven by mass consumption, where increasing demand dictates the flow of mass-produced goods. But at the same time, it kills the very essence of the human spirit that’s been the heart of commerce for centuries. When you buy local handmade goods, you are bound to have an experience that is much more intimate and personalized. Not to mention, the heartfelt gratitude of a simple artisan triumphs over the indifference of a global conglomerate.
That spirit and sentiment will always stay with us because it’s who we are as a people. India has always celebrated the simple dignity of a human being, and we at Partake India, will do our bit to preserve the human values that have been the very foundation of our country and culture.
The Indian artisan has very limited access in terms of consumer reach or markets, at home or abroad. Our site is inhabited with a wide selection of products from every corner of the country, direct from the artisan, NGOs working closely with artisan groups or from enterprises that directly deploy artisans in the creation of their products.
