Social Impact – At Craftsvilla we are dedicated to supporting the artisans, who have preserved our rich and diverse heritage and culture and are now finding it difficult to sustain it. We support them by providing them employment and bringing to the world their priceless art in the form of our products.

Taking this one step further we have also established a Craftsvilla fund in support of these artisans."
