Business details

Caravan Craft deals in traditional handicrafts both online and offline. It connects the gap between the artistic traditions of the country to customers.Caravan’s plan encompasses the stages of identifying artisan clusters with market potential, assessment of their skill-gaps, designing product configurations that bridge skill-sets and consumer needs and making the cluster ready to take production orders for the market. The object is to provide all necessary design and training inputs to produce exclusive merchandise working usually within the framework of cooperatives. The company will further be partnering with departmental stores in Switzerland, France and other European countries. It is also launching online presence across multiple online channels and ecommerce sites.It is also looking at franchise outlets in tourist-heavy locations such as Goa, Jaipur and Cochin. The biggest challenge is to draw customers.
