During my time in private banking, I came to Delhi and I started off with handloom and hand embroidered scarves, dupattas, sarees to create awareness about Bengal art and craft, among her peers, which later turned out to be her true calling. After working for a decade in corporate sector, I started my journey as a social entrepreneur, to work with the artisans, with different crafts of West Bengal. In Bengal, it is in the genes.
Everyone intentionally or unintentionally is inclined towards handloom products. I was raised among all of this so the inclination is very natural. I have personally done a lot of crochet work, embroidery, jute work, fabric paint etc.
I personally fo lot of oil painting and I am trained in classical dance as well. Maya Weaves, the name of my venture is inspired by my aunt who is a National Awardee Artisan. I consider my aunt and her love for the craft, the inspiration behind Maya Weaves. I bootstrapped my business and has been investing the profits back into the business for further growth.
The first big order for Maya Weaves, was from a from A&T, a renowned designer duo from Delhi. We have learnt a lot while working with them. From there on, our journey escalated well. We have since then worked with a lot of A-listed designers, corporates, budding designers, government emporiums and private buyers.
