Our Story

Tribalfare specializes in offering one of a kind ethnic products, hand crafted by artisans across India.

Tribalfare relies on local networking and research to find extraordinary artisans, authenticate their trade and source products directly from the artisans or the grassroots organizations that support and employ them. Our products are a testimony of their fine workmanship. We travel once a year in search of the most brilliant craftspeople in different regions of India. It is important to physically visit the actual place our products are sourced from to make sure we are doing our due diligence to make sure fair trade practices are involved in creating your purchase. We take time to understand their creative process and form a relationship that is based on the principles of fair trade. We then curate the products based on what they have available in their inventory and they are paid in full at the time of purchase. We do not believe in consigning the products as the artisan has already spent the time and effort in creation of these one of a kind pieces. The risk and pressure is hence transferred to us to house the inventory in hopes of reaching out to people like you who believe in supporting this kind of a challenging business model. That moment when you receive the product and smell the dyes on the fabrics, feel the embroidered textures or amaze at the handprinted beads and craftsmanship. That moment makes it all worthwhile for us.

Our products include Skirts, Scarves, Handbags, Jewelry, Bedding Textiles and select items for the home. Each product while while ethnic is well adapted for modern lifestyle. Due to the artisan nature of the products, most are of limited availability and no two pieces are alike.
