We are a bunch passionate about traditional weaving and embroidery. We are even more passionate about the people we work with.
We work with hand-embroiderers and weavers from all over India and make the best looking clothes using traditional techniques. Not just beautiful, they are of sustainable quality and best suited for Indian climes.
HandsOfIndia(HOI for short) started as a collective dream of two sisters, Malyada and Ramya. Both of us share an immense passion and love for the handicraft tradition and the people who are masters of such traditional and inspiring skills. We also strongly believe that sustainable natural processes make the best products. We had a privileged childhood in a large joint family, in a town called Vrindaban, which is one of the most important religious centers in India. The home we grew in is full of handmade stuff – intricate yet simple, extremely eco-friendly and amazingly beautiful. Our family runs one of the biggest temples of Northern India, which houses about 100 odd families and where hand made traditions have always been and still are an integral part of life.
We are currently a 30 member organisation working out of a quiet garden in the bylanes of Vrindaban.
