What if a product is not in stock?

As all our products are handcrafted, there is generally only one product of each kind. Thus, if a product is out of stock, we will renew the art form with similar products, but not the exact same one. If you like a product which is not in stock, you can add the same to your wish-list and we will notify you as soon as a similar product is in stock. However, we are sure that you will find a product in our extensive catalogue that suits your taste.

In the rare circumstance where the order has been accepted and due to some reasons we are not able to ship, we will notify you within 24 hrs and refund the entire amount through the same mode by which the payment was originally made, within 2 weeks.

The timelines are an indication of average time required. Though we try our best to make the whole shipping process foolproof, there might be delays due to customs clearance, etc which are not in our control.

Anything else I need to know?

Please remember that you are looking at a unique, one-of-its-kind, handcrafted product. Thus there will be those little imperfections which are what make the product special unlike a perfect finished factory made item.

  • Slight variation in color shade - It is normal to find slight variation in a product’s color shade due to difference in viewing conditions, differences in lighting or due to your computer’s monitor. Moreover, different natural dyes color the fabric differently under diverse conditions.
  • Unevenness - In hand woven cloth, it is natural to find unevenness in the fabric’s weaving. It is not a defect but a unique characteristic of hand woven fabric itself.
  • Shrinkage - In case of cotton apparel, please allow 5% for shrinkage.
  • Color run - In case where natural colors or vegetable dyes are used, it is normal for colors such as reds and indigo to run in the first few washes. The clothes have been dyed keeping this in mind and the fabric is intended to lose some of its coloring thus attaining a lighter, cooler shade than original.
  • Some of the products (such as Meenakari jewellery) are low-cost replica of the original art forms. Some art forms were originally made in gold and other precious stones/material but over a period of time have evolved by using a cheaper substitute material. Our intention is to bring these art forms (original/replica) to you at an affordable price.
