Welcome to Sarasu.in
Being an ardent handloom fan from my childhood, I always wantedto start a handloom store. I have heard stories about the plight ofthe handloom weavers, but after visiting the houses of many weavers,I found that whatever I heard was only the tip of the iceberg. Theweavers work long hours just to make ends meet. Their situation isvery pathetic. We visited the house of a weaver who won the nationalaward for weaving a saree that fits in a match box. During the visitwe found out that his relative, also a weaver, committed suicide afew days before due to financial problems. The dead man'swife was working alongside her father-in-law on a new saree.
Sarasu.in started with social entrepreneurship in mind. Havingseen the plight of the weavers, we have decided to be socially responsible and entertain onlyhandloom and hand-made products on our site and try to alleviate at least some of the sufferings of the weavers and artisans. At the same time we want our customers to have the best products at best prices that they can relish and enjoy for a long time.
We have several tie-upswith weavers, weavers' societies, government organizations andwomen's backward people's self-help groups.
Sarasu.in believes in "Elegance in Simplicity" and strivesto bring you the best in terms of comfort, style and quality. Throughthis social-entrepreneurship we want to create value and objects ofbeauty for our customers.
Sarasu.in also encourages you to make handlooms a part of yourlife.
