The new wave of ‘vocal for local’ has proven to be a boost for Indian entrepreneurs. It has promoted local businesses and given customers the ability and motivation to shop with ease. This rebranded version of ‘Made In India’ has our support, and every week, TC46 spotlights small businesses and ventures you can champion and support easily through online and offline purchases.
What we absolutely love is that women have come out of the shadows of oblivion, and how! They are making their presence felt everywhere, and have made headway into male-dominated spheres that were once considered to be out of bounds. One such challenge is entrepreneurship.
This week, we’re cheering on three women-led small businesses that deserve your attention. Check them out!

Brand: India Craft Art
Founder: Bhavna Arun Parasrampuria
What The Brand Offers: Sustainable accessories
TC46 Loves: Empowered by its 100% child labour-free production process, India Craft Art specialises in curating jute baskets, linens, tote bags, and potlis. The products of this brand are not only hand-crafted from recycled industrial components but they are also reusable and fairly created. Apart from minimising the waste mountain, the products are crafted with the objective to uplift women artisans from India’s marginalised and underprivileged community. The idea behind designing these accessories is to eliminate poverty among its artisans, create good jobs and drive economic growth, and promote responsible consumption. The use of natural fibre in combination with high-quality, made-to-last products results in a net reduction in plastics. Not only this, but the materials used are also naturally decomposable, reducing the carbon footprint of the company.
Price: The price ranges between Rs 500 and Rs 3,000
Availability: The products are exclusively available through their official website and Instagram
