Back in 1998, Exotic India started operations by offering miniature paintings from unknown and unsung artists. We were one of the first companies to offer Indian Art over the world wide web. The quality of art and ease of service offered was well appreciated and in quick time artists from all over India were represented on the website.
In the coming years, a hand-picked selection of jewelry, textiles, books, and sculptures was built online. Our strategic partnerships with FedEx, UPS, and DHL ensured orders were processed and delivered worldwide in 3 to 5 days.
From the beginning, Exotic India set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only sold merchandise, but that also brought together people in love with India by offering detailed information on her spirituality, culture, arts, and religions.
Our Mission: To make India's famed arts, crafts, and spiritual depth accessible to all.
Fair Trade: We faithfully adhere to the principles of Fair Trade. All artisans, designers, and artists working with Exotic India are paid upfront, with remuneration above than market rates. We are against the practice of Child Labor, and certify that none of our merchandise involves children at any point of the manufacturing process.
Today, Exotic India is a dedicated team of 25 people, led by MBAs and Engineers from top Indian Schools. We have shipped to 153 of the 195 countries in the world till date (including St. Kitts & Nevis, Andorra, Belize, Bermuda, et al), with a loyal customer base of more than 100,000 assiduously built over the past 12 years of our operations.
