Ekibeki is a social enterprise which works to preserve the rich craft heritage of India through awareness, design and market interventions. They work with artisans to create a wide range of contemporary and eco-friendly home décor products, aesthetically designed jewellery, and stationery supplies with motifs inspired from the Gond, Pattachitra and Chitrakathi folk art forms.
The Ekibeki vision is to revive the folk arts and crafts of India and help generate livelihood for women and young artisans. The traditional Indian artisans with compromised opportunities and economically difficult conditions struggle to make their ends meet through stable incomes. This has resulted in the reduction of the creative workforce leading to dying ancient crafts, generation after generation. Ekibeki has identified some of the issues faced by the artisans. Through the hand-crafted products and other efforts, they strive to mitigate these issues and foster a better path to livelihood for artisans.
