PARTAKE INDIA

Partake India is a platform for discovering the wonderful works of artisans belonging to all parts of India. It is our sole objective to enrich the lives of our country’s many talented artisans who, in modern times, are not always able to sustain a respectful life.

India is a diverse country with an age-old culture, traditionally rich in arts and crafts. Artisans, the inheritors of intricate knowledge and unique skill, are the backbone of the non-agricultural rural economy, and they often find themselves living below the poverty line. The biggest challenge is to ensure that their skill remains relevant and alive.

Our intent, which drives every endeavor undertaken, is to promote the local artisan and small entrepreneur by connecting them with potential and interested patrons with an eye for something special, something made with a heart-centric human touch. Our products are not machine made, not produced in bulk in an industry from a neighbouring country, but born out of indigenous creativity.

In an age of increasing automation, it’s our mission to keep human connection at the heart of commerce. That’s why we built a place where creativity lives and thrives because it’s powered by people. We help our community of sellers turn their ideas into successful businesses. Our platform connects them with millions of conscious buyers.

Partake India is a strong advocate of Fair Trade.

Fair trade has become so much more than a commercial model. It’s now a social movement in its own right, as a growing number of people choose products characterized by a commitment to improving conditions for vulnerable producers around the world.
