Get your hands on beautiful hand-embroidered and hand-crafted products!

If you're into the charm of colorful hand-embroidered products, this place is your happy place. Run by the talented women of SEWA Trade Facilitation Centre, Hansiba, an apparel brand is a treasure trove featuring everything from quirky kurtis and stylish saris to pillowcases with personality, decorative quilts, purses that pop, shawls that shine, and even pants that pack a punch. Oh, and did we mention the cute keychains?

The products come from various rural areas within the state and the nation. Created by women artisans dedicated to preserving traditional crafts and arts, these bold and beautiful items embody the essence of their cultural heritage.

What awaits you at the store?

If you crave authenticity and tradition over mainstream brands, Hansiba is your haven. Experience the fusion of regional handloom and contemporary flair, featuring exquisite kurtis, short tops, saris, pants, pillowcases with enchanting motifs, traditional cloth torans, bed sheets, decorative pieces, handbags, and more.

Crafted by skilled women from Kutch, Surendranagar, Patan, Banaskantha, and beyond, the products showcase the unique handicrafts and influences of these regions. Additionally, you'll find pieces from other states, such as saris from West Bengal and Pashmina from Kashmir.

Why lend your support to this cause?

In contrast to fast fashion, these handloom products embody the rich legacy of our culture and the women artisans behind them. Each item is meticulously hand-embroidered and crafted. During a conversation with the store manager at Hansiba, we came to know that SEWA dispatches kits to rural women artisans, allowing them to create these products at home. Once completed, the products return to be sold under the Hansiba label.

Remarkably, 65% of all sales directly benefit the artisans. Therefore, when you make a purchase from this store, you not only acquire a piece of exquisite heritage handicraft but also contribute to sustaining the livelihoods of rural women artisans and preserving the fading art of embroidery in our state.
