Who We Are
Kalpané, कल्पने, ಕಲ್ಪನೆ means conception and innovation in Kannada
Kalpané is a curated marketplace of artisanal products conceptualised by some of India's best upcoming designers and handcrafted by skilled artisans in India.
We offer Indian handcrafted luxury goods. We offer a wide range of products from home accessories, lifestyle, natural skincare products, sustainable furniture and much more.
Luxury as per our philosophy lies in the consumer experience of the product. Products that are meticulously hand-crafted using age-old artisanal techniques, made in small batches, using exquisite craftsmanship qualify as luxury products.
The collection on our website has been hand-picked to provide the consumer with unique products created using artisanal techniques.
We have selected each one of our designers/sellers after research and we can very confidently say that we stand-behind each of their products that are being showcased on Kalpané. We cut through the clutter and offer hand crafted, artisanal and high-quality products to global consumers. We strive to convey the story of each of our maker and their products
As a brand, we truly believe that there is a lot more to design in India than traditional embroideries and artefacts and our aim is to bring that to the consumer not just in India but globally.
