At Indelust we connected India’s loveliest clothing and home décor to the rest of the world via our cutting edge e-commerce website. Our extensive knowledge of the Indian market allowed us to meet makers – traditional and new – from across the country. We committed ourselves to celebrating good design. And, we aimed to build a community of passionate people who not only loved our products but understood the importance of ethical, sustainable production and connected with the stories behind each designer, each garment, and each artisan. We feel privileged to have been part of the dialogue and look forward to seeing what the future holds for Indian craft. Nihar and I hope that you cherish the products you purchased from us for a lifetime.
