WELCOME TO ART-HI-SHAN
Direct Interface Between You & Artisans
Supported by HCL Foundation, under the Project ‘Surakhsit Udyam Vikas’, Foundation for MSME Clusters (www.fmc.org.in), a not for profit registered trust is honored to present you Art-hi-shan.in, a COVID-19 initiative to connect friends and lovers of handicrafts and handlooms eventually to 2 million artisans of India to promote and enhance livelihood opportunities for artisans and their families not with the thought of a momentary charity but in a dignified and sustainable manner by creating a potential market platform.
Neither HCL Foundation nor FMC does earn or receive any financial benefit out of a potential transaction or any business communication between a buyer and seller which will occur through this platform. It has been estimated that on an average almost 50 per cent of the total amount of the product consists of livelihood (income) of the artisan while the remaining of the amount consists of raw material and other overhead cost. For any purchase, order, or any product related query, you are requested to contact directly with the artisans and make the payment directly to the artisans through preferred mode as both of you deem suitable. Neither HCL Foundation nor FMC does have any role on the price, and it is purely decided by the artisan and you may discuss directly with the artisan on this matter as mutually agreeable. Hence, every product purchased, you are paying 100% of the amount directly to the artisan and contributing significantly to their livelihood.
Neither HCL Foundation nor FMC does own or has any legal right/obligation on the products/designs which have been displayed on this platform. In this regard, an email from each of those artisans, artisan’s group/association have been received on official email id of FMC, i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org whereby they have verified the same.
If you have any query or objection, you can directly contact the respective artisans whose contact numbers are made available on this platform on filling up the required registration form. It is also to inform you that HCL Foundation or FMC does not take any responsibility for product shipping or any damage to the products. However, in such cases, respective buyers can approach FMC and we will try to connect to you with the artisan concerned.
Look forward to your kind support and contribution towards livelihood promotion through art-hi-shan and help it grow sustainably.
