JOURNEY FROM HOME TO HASTKARI
FIND THREE HOBBIES YOU LOVE:
ONE TO MAKE YOU MONEY,
ONE TO KEEP YOU IN SHAPE, AND ONE TO BE CREATIVE.
In my case, all the above came true with just one hobby of art & craft. It helped me generate money, is keeping me in shape, and adding to my creativity.
I was good at art & craft from a very young age. It was in the year 2010 when the first time I felt that I should learn more and invest my time in developing Art & Craft skills. There was no specific thought behind and hence started with wooden mural frames and oil painting classes.
Initially made mural frames, photo frames, nameplates, oil painted earthen pots, and much more. One order lead to others and so on.
Then a thought came to commercialize my hobby in a professional manner. And this is how Hastkari® came into existence.
In the year 2012, an investment was made in buying a commercial space in the Ghatkopar area, the heart of Mumbai city. “HASTKARI®” was born on 24th October 2012. Customers were amazed by such a professional approach of trousseau packing boutique and their impression of the household was changed.
Ring Ceremony to Wedding Ceremony to Baby Shower, each and every occasion was catered with designer decorative trays. Customer retention was important for which, from Trousseau to Rakhi’s to Diya’s and Door hangings, to Chocolate and Money Bouquets, all seasonal and occasional products were handcrafted.
