About Sevya Handmade

icon-for-header

"Sevya" is a  Sanskrit word that means "caring through service"; caring for humanity and for the environment we live in.  Sevya is dedicated to preserving the indigenous art forms  and cultures of India by supporting the artisan communities who uphold these traditions.

Sevya was founded in 2002, and is the brainchild of Swami Dayananda Saraswati, a renown teacher of Vedanta who worked throughout his life to nurture a culture of dharma and caring throughout India.

All of Sevya's fair trade products are made by artisan groups using centuries-old craft traditions, with the finest natural fibers and materials.  The revenue earned through the wholesale and retail marketing of these products is used to fund need-based development programs throughout India, under the auspices of the All India Movement for Seva (www.aimforseva.org).

Where there is Love, There is Life ” -  Mahatma Gandhi

Sevya works with artisan cooperatives throughout India to develop contemporary styles and designs that showcase their traditional and eco-friendly methods of handcraft--including hand-loom, block-printing, tie-dye, and embroidery.

Sevya's unique collection of fair trade clothing, scarves, and jewelry bring together fair trade and fashion. Our wholesale scarves can be found in museum stores, boutiques, catalogs, and fair trade stores throughout the US, Canada, and Europe.
