'Samaun' is an Uttarakhandi word which means ' A memorable gift' .So we at Samaun are working towards bringing native craft and pure local produce from Himalayan Hinterland on a single platform.In this thread,we are connecting people who are working specifically in two areas
1 .Handicrafts & souvenirs
2 .Local produce of Himalaya
The state of artisans and farmers of the Himalayan states would not be improved unless they get a proper channel to market their products.A commercial approach to sell their products was felt by the founders of ‘Samaun’, After extensive research and travel in far flung areas of Himalayan region,the idea was conceptualized to display and market their products online and offline.
Hand Picked Products
Products are purchased directly from small farmers,Self Help Groups( specially women SHGs ) and prominent NGOs to ensure fair cost and authenticity of the produce.Hand crafts are also either procured directly from independent artisans or self help groups working together. Continuous feedback from market to farmers/artisans is supplied to keep the products in line with market needs.
Local store in Dehradun
Apart from the E-commerce platform, SAMAUN is having its retail presence in Dehradun with most comprehensive collection of uttarakhand produce,handicraft,souvenirs,cultural and ethnic gifts in dehradun produced by native farmers and artisans.Some more stores are to be added soon.
