The women behind and upfront : Shubha Ramesh
With an experience of over 12 years as a Manager in Finance and Payroll of a Major Retailer; it was Shubhas’s disposition towards creativity and uniqueness that led her enter into the realm of handmade products. The discovery of the talent of a lot of local women and men gave a goal to her passion.
She learned about the people and communities who are artists and have expertise into creating Home made and Handmade Products but are unable to find opportunities that could help them take their products to the market. She found that these entrepreneurs face a lot many challenges when it comes to earn from their skills and get their work recognized. They need a sufficient capital requirement to start their business successfully which however, is not an easy task. Also, the cost of website maintenance, rentals, and the multi-channel marketing makes the job more difficult.
...And thus, she built the Handmade Adda - the brand with an aim to encourage and enable the first time entrepreneurs. She believes that these women entrepreneurs, once freed from the obstacles, can bring changes in their own lives as well as in the lives of others. With Handmade Adda, she started with a new journey of promoting their products and services on web, social media, and flea Markets. This way, she has helped and is helping many local artists and creative people make a better living.
Also, not just creativity, Shubha has an equal obsession for quality of the products that are being processed, manufactured, or sold by Handmade Adda. From a homemade bathing soap to the handmade Terracotta earrings, she never lets a single item go to the shelf before testing it herself.
“Handmade Adda is a proud initiative for the people who are looking for ways to market their handmade products. It gives them a platform to show their skills, get recognized, and earn. Also, it is an exciting way to touch people’s lives with the purity of handmade and homemade products. ...From making these products with hands to selling them, everything is different here!” -Shubha Ramesh
