A Fair Trade Love Story

Manish Gupta returned to India after years in the United States and was deeply moved by the poverty he witnessed. Inspired by India's rich culture and potential, he sought to make a difference. Through many conversations and cups of tea, Manish found his mission: to bridge diverse worlds.

Manish partnered with grassroots organizations to transform unskilled individuals into master artisans using eco-friendly materials. With support from his mother and sister, he built a dedicated team in India. Meanwhile, in Austin, Texas, a team designed collections that appealed to Western audiences while honoring Indian culture.

During this journey, Manish found love and partnership with the inspiring Indian designer, Ruchi. Over a decade later, their small venture from their Austin apartment has grown into a pioneering fair trade wholesaler, championing ethical and sustainable practices.
