Grameena Angadi is a treasure trove of handlooms and handicrafts
of Karnataka. Colourful, bright and aesthetic, Grameena Angadi holds the rural
artisan’s hand !!
Angadi is a heaven for Desi-shoppers. It is a store that promotes contemporary
rural products. Grameena Angadi, a co-operative store started by the Grameena
Karakushala Udyama, an association that provides a platform to unemployed but
skilled rural youth to sell their products directly to consumers.
Grameena Angadi has been moving closely
with the rural Handicrafts people from past 7-8 years. We were astonished to
see the applied skills in the rural artisans. Grameena Angadi works closely
with the artisans on day to day basis to enable and nurture their inbuild
skillset. These artisans are not hard working creatures involved in the
handicraft industry just for their livelihood , but they helping in retaining
& enriching our domestic cultural heritage.
artisans have a lot of difficulties as they can't evolve due to the
modernization, because there is no platform to sell their products and there is
no proper market facilities to support them and they are not aware of effective
marketing approach, transportation hurdles, policies made by middlemen are not
favourable to them.
We aim at providing sustainability and
make sure their products reach the profitable Markets. And to help artisans to
be self-employed and to be the biggest beneficiaries in the system.” We request
all of you to join hands with us in this noble cause.
The shop started initially as a a tiny 10 by
10 space but its scope has expanded over the time and has opened four branches

being entering to extinction. The shop has a collection of various products
like sarees , kurtas , bags and dress materials from Koppal , Gadag , Bijapur ,
