Direct Create, a Gurgaon-based online platform is simply awesome for handicraft enthusiasts, designers, and craftsmen looking to create/shop for Indian handicraft products. Simply put, it's an art-focused and art-only ecosystem for makers, designers, organisations, and buyers like you and I.
If you’re a designer looking for a specialised craft skill to bring your designs to life (clothing, home décor, and so on), you can connect with craftsmen here. Alternatively, if you’re looking to shop for bespoke and eclectic handicraft products from across the country, you can shop them from Direct Create's online store at fairly reasonable prices. What makes them even more awesome is that they stock wares crafted by unique, lesser-known brands. Whether you’re looking for an interesting décor piece to spruce up a corner of your home or a pashmina shawl, you’ll find it here.
We love their ceramic pots, Warli-painted cotton napkins and sterling silver jewellery collection the most. Direct Create's also got a really fancy collection of paintings. Their home décor section also includes dhurries, table runners, paper mache boxes, and wooden cutlery, so (online) window-shop away! Prices vary depending on the product, but we have to say that we’re impressed by the affordability of most of the stuff.
