2. Weaverstory

Indian weaves have long been valued for their high quality and intricate designs. Weaver Story, an indigenous Indian handloom brand, understood the importance of such weaving as well as the challenges in finding genuine Indian handlooms. So, Nishant Malhotra, the brand's founder, collaborated with a group of authentic Varanasi Weavers, and soon a simple home-grown name became a worldwide brand for Indian handlooms. Weaver Story seeks to revive Indian weaving and make it simpler for weavers to increase work opportunities and financial rewards. Today, Weaver Story brings the most genuine and exquisitely crafted products for both men and women while helping many traditional weavers across the nation improve their living conditions.
