From The Founders:
Hi I am Manjuri Hazarika , and Kritenya is my dream work, where I create and explore new possibilities. We like to work and interact with the local people who are skilled and have the will to work in a different yet homely work enviroment. We avoid factory kind of work. We try to follow fair trade practices and mostly work with women. Visiting the weavers and crafts men time to time also adds to our travel stories.
My husband Anil Singh is the man behind the whole concept of Kritenya. We being childhood friends make terrific work partners where we fight, we discuss, we criticise and finally we create those pieces which we bring to you.
That's briefly about us.
Till now it has been a journey of ups and downs, like driving thorugh a mountain trail. When we look back the jouney is as beautifull as the hilly trail you see, when you stop at a mountain top. And yes.... you can forget the lows and cherish the highs.
Keep your love and support coming.
