Our Story

 
As a child, I would play “Hide & Seek” in my father’s textile mill. One of my favorite hiding spots was ducking under a large pile of colorful dyed yarn.

Waiting to be found, I would get lost in the richness of the various colors of hand-dyed yarn. As I grew older, these colors stayed with me. They are now a major part of the inspiration behind "Shilpa Rathi".

Following in my father's footsteps & continuing the tradition from childhood... it is our mission to provide top-quality products to our customers with the best in customer service, while treating our artisans fairly as they help bring our ideas to life.

Beautiful designs. All-natural materials. Preserving Culture. Fair Trade. Making the World a Better Place one hand block at a time!
