Sansita Jeevana (IND-107)


Type: Art/Culture - Country: India

Brief description and main aims

Sansita Jeevana  is a one of a kind project. We produce unique and timeless heritage handlooms with a different story behind them by using energy efficient solar powered units. Our traditional and highly skilled handloom weavers process and weave natural fibre like banana, hibiscus, korai grass and vettiver. This heritage handloom can be customised to suit any decor from roof/wall cladding, window dressing, headboards, veneers, lighting etc.
 
Sansita is currently working on expansion of production capacities by adopting different villages and is in the process of establishing a Business Development department team that will focus on achieving scalability and administrative cost efficiency.
