About the Company: Indika is an idea that grew out of our love of India’s creative traditions and our interest in social welfare. We are connected with a handful of organizations around India that work to bring employment to artisans and keep alive traditional skills. These organizations are focused on ecological awareness and self sustainability. In the face of harsh climates and natural disasters they push boundaries socially, economically and technologically in the work that they do.
The unique nature of their lives can be felt in the things they produce. Part of our philosophy involves buying what is offered for sale – never dictating to the artisans what should be produced for the western market. You will find that the items we offer have a distinctive quality. We feel this is due to the fact that they are created in an environment so completely different from ours – in this lies their beauty. Thank you for looking at our shop. – Travis, Farinaz, Aisha
