As a largely unorganized sector, handicrafts need more professional infrastructure, work sheds, storage space, shipping, and parking facilities. Primarily self-employed artisans suffered the brunt of the pandemic as they were dependent on seasonal retail sales and direct orders. Village Kraft started the first retail experience store in February 2020 in the handloom city of Odisha Sambalpur, which is famous worldwide for its handloom Sambalpuri Saree. The journey started with a bumpy ride due to COVID-19 and the lockdown, but Village Kraft overcame the roadblock by launching their ecommerce site. "Village Kraft has an aim to facilitate customers to get the most reasonable prices for the best-handcrafted products and keep the artisans and weavers who are the backbone of the industry updated with the market trends”, speaks Chinmay Satpathy, Founder.

Woodshala is one of the greatest in the field, with years of experience & a team that provides traditional handcrafted & personal touches to make exceptional items for its customers
Getting a piece of furniture at a good price is easy in this competitive age, but getting a total wood product at a good price is unusual since it requires a skilled carpenter and top-quality raw material procurement, which is a rare combination. Unlike other manufacturers, the firm does not use MDF or Engineering Wood only to meet the daily price, but the firm thinks that wooden items should be used for decades, therefore it only delivers the best quality wood at a reasonable price for its customers.
Modern products can be produced quickly, but it takes years and a lot of effort to obtain the precision required for making complex furniture. Woodshala is one of the greatest in the field, with years of experience and a team that provides traditional handcrafted and personal touches to make exceptional items for its customers.
"My family has been in the export business for over 25 years, and the idea in this field was my father. We founded this firm in 2019, and the journey has been difficult and challenging. We almost closed this firm in the first six months because there were no sales, but my father kept encouraging me with his wise words, and we recently established our showroom in Bangalore. The journey gave us valuable experience and what the public requires, and we began manufacturing according to client wants and requests. In the near future, we look forward to extending our business abroad and creating more showrooms and boutique stores” concludes Aayush Kothari.
