Indihands broadly caters to two segments
Our artisans create contemporary gifts for your corporate customers, partners, vendors and employees. Our belief lies in creating “Experience”, and that is the reason why, every product, which we deliver, carries some uniqueness to serve the purpose of gifting and conveys your emotions. It is you who helps us empower these artisans, because all we do is collate their art, give it a more contemporary form, and present it to you. Recreate the beauty of such heritage for your corporate clients; gift a small memento to your employees as a token of appreciation. Our gifts are ideal for a range of corporate events including regular employee events, product launches, conferences, seminars and award ceremonies.
At Indihands, we have a range of unique gift articles which can be suited for various personal gifting requirements like birthdays, marriages, house warming, anniversary etc.
We also have “Bring your Concept” offering, in which you just bring your concept or gifting idea and we will design it from scratch, along with you to convert your concept to a reality. Many of our customers comes to us with these kinds of requirements for their bulk gifting requirements.
Our Brand Philosophy
We, at IndiHands, try to inject art and aestheticism into your lives, adding in positivity and inspiration for creativity. Our brand design reflects this sentiment. The art form used is Warli, from the tribals of Maharashtra and Gujarat, who thrive in simplicity yet durability. They celebrate their lives, and have a distinct interdependence with nature. We try to recreate this sense of teamwork, of connecting the corporate world with grass-root level artisans. Thus, our brand is named ‘IndiHands’, made of two components: ‘Indi’, for Indian art which we specifically focus on, and ‘Hands’, which has connotations of handwork and handmade work in our machine-oriented world.
