“He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.”
– Saint Francis
I’m Antima Khanna. I am based in New Delhi, India. I am the mind and soul behind this platform. My idea of a happy life is to ‘Keep Exploring’.
This platform was officially born in the year 2013 after many collaborations and part-time projects. My love for Handmade comes from my family roots. My maternal grandfather was a book-binder and his printing business was one of the renowned business in Delhi-NCR. I grew up watching them making notebooks. My mother has been my inspiration. Her ability of multitasking makes her one of the strongest person I have ever met. Her old books, threads and products on embroidery, handmade notes on binding are in my possession at present and they are invaluable for me.
I am a trained Accountant by studies and more than that a financial and company regulations mentor to many start-ups. Our Products include Handmade Jewelry, Hand-bound Notebooks, Hand-painted products and various other Handmade products. Each product is one of its kind, and designed to stay with you for a long time. We hope they resonate with the love that they were made with.
Don’t miss the Blog section where you will get to read about many Crafts of India and about some inspiring people in the creative world.
Join me on my journey in exploring many stories in the world of Handmade.
