Planet Handcrafted announced its official launch with a steadfast commitment to preserving cultural heritage and endangered art forms and supporting generational indigenous artisans.
Founded by Anirban Ghosh, a passionate advocate for indigenous arts and crafts, Planet Handcrafted aims to bridge the gap between global consumers and talented artisans who create exquisite, authentic, and indigenous handcrafted products. The platform serves as a virtual marketplace, offering a wide assortment of the highest quality handcrafted products sourced directly from artisans.
Expressing excitement about the venture, Anirban said “Our goal is to empower indigenous, generational artisans with a tech-powered platform that curates authentic, heritage art forms and makes them available to discerning
consumers globally. Through this, we hope to protect these endangered arts and generate significant income
and employment at the grassroots of the economy and bridge the digital divide that the practitioners of these
art forms often find themselves struggling to traverse.”
He went on to say,” We know that through our commitment to sustainability, high quality, authentic handcrafted products, great customer service, and the well-being of the artisan communities, we can make a significant impact in the world.”
