Not very often in this age of mass-produced & automated technology do you find a brand that purely delves into the hidden treasures of rural Indian handicraft skills. Rista Handicrafts is one such brand. They aspire to bring you exquisitely handmade products using nature-friendly and bio-degradable raw materials.
Rista Handicrafts promises to take you on an excursion into all things natural- drawing inspiration from woods, birds, springs, animals and humans to create a prolific spectrum of products that cater to the needs of the urban audience. They offer products like laptop bags, trays, coasters, bangle boxes and magazine stands to name a few. Each product is meticulously created with their love for nature and endeavour to bridge the gap between artisans in remote villages that have preserved traditional handicraft skills inherited through generations and the fast-moving world that fails to realise the importance of sustainability. They work closely with artisans based in districts of Mayurbhanj, Jeypore and Kendrapara (Odisha) to magnify their exposure to the outside world filled with opportunities.
The brand emphasises on offering products that are of absolute utility for their clients by being responsible towards the environment. Rista Handicrafts aims to revive the abundantly available rural skills and rejuvenate traditional handicrafts with a tinge of urban funk to it.
Rista has been incubated by IITM’s Rural Technology and Business Incubator and has been committed to exploring all available means from partnering with corporates, malls and shops to social media leaving no room for omission of any prospective co-nature lovers.
