Given the rising interest towards art among the populace and growing disposable income among today’s youth, the art & craft industry is witnessing a massive demand in recent times. As a result, we are witnessing a large number of startups taking birth each day in this space, wanting to create a niche for themselves in the industry through their unique offerings and functional methodologies. Founded in 2021 by Neha Dubey (Founder), The Artisan Emporium (TAE) is a Noida-based e-Commerce platform offering a wide range of handcrafted daily use household products that are crafted by taking inspiration from India’s rich cultural heritage.

"The majority of the artisans we work with are women hailing from Jaipur and Uttar Pradesh. It's worth noting that some of these women are the primary breadwinners for their families, and we take pride in supporting their craft. The growing prevalence of mass-produced goods and the emphasis on efficiency and automation have led to machines replacing skilled artisans. Unfortunately, this trend not only affects their livelihoods but also diminishes the value of handmade products. At The Artisan Emporium, we have a vision of preserving the skills & expertise of these talented artisans and the human touch that makes handcrafted items unique and beautiful", says Neha.

Combining traditional craftsmanship with modern designs, TAE offers a wide range of dining and home decor products that include Serveware, Drinkware, Kitchenware, Décor Trays, Tissue & Napkin Holders, Ceramic Bathroom Accessory Sets and Candle Holders, to name a few. Additionally, the company also offers gifting solutions such as Corporate Gifting, Festival Gifting and other special occasions gifting. Each of these products are completely ecofriendly and made using reusable materials only.
"Our design, quality and packaging are the three factors that have enabled us to stay ahead of our competition. We take time to create designs that blend traditional craftsmanship with modern artistry, and every design has a story to tell. Every product of ours undergoes stringent quality inspection before being shipped to the customers, and anything that fails to do so is kept aside. Since most of our products are fragile, we take every necessary measure to ensure the safety of goods while in transit. Customers can place an order either from our website or through other e-Commerce platforms such as Amazon and Flipkart, thus granting them the freedom to choose their preferred ordering platform", adds Neha.

TAE's Ceramic Dinnerware Collection is considered as its flagship offering and has gathered a lot of traction in recent times. Available in varied designs and colors, these items are carefully designed keeping in mind the style, convenience and functionality factors. Thus, the Ceramic Dinnerware Collection is perfect for people wanting to add personality and flair to their dining table. Additionally, these items are completely free from lead and BPA, making them 100 percent toxin-free and safe for diverse food consumption needs.

"What sets our Ceramic Dinnerware Items apart is their artisanal, handmade quality. Our skilled artisans carefully craft each item, ensuring that they're of the highest quality and completely unique. Additionally, we use stoneware in our products, a type of ceramic that is fired at very high temperature which makes it more durable than other kinds of pottery or earthenware. It is an excellent alternative to bone china as it doesn't contain any bone ash. This makes our products entirely suitable for vegetarians", explains Neha.

Going forward, TAE plans to foray into the brick and mortar segment to have a presence across more cities and expand its homeware and dining product portfolios. Additionally, the company also aspires to continue supporting local artisans by acting as a platform to showcase their craftsmanship and provide high quality products to urban households.
