Miharu is a platform for Indian Handicraft. It is a link between Indian Artisan and urban client. It is not an NGO. It is very much a business venture but that supports social cause. We partner with individual artisans, NGO’s and SHG’s to source , design and sell unique utility products with traditional crafts of Dokra, Baluchari & Woodwork. The aim being to present traditional handicraft products in contemporary style to urban clientele. In doing this Miharu is able to preserve traditional Indian Craft and provide livelihood to artisans. There is also a constant endeavour to educate customers about the products by sharing craft stories with them. Enabling an appreciation of time and effort that an artisan puts in creating each piece of craft.
