Why the World Prefers Handicrafts Products

This Is Why the World Prefers Indian Houseware Productsimg_9264
Meta: Though Housewares are manufactured all over the world, Indian manufacturers have a cult following as they promise very high quality with an artistic touch.
What are Housewares?
Housewares are nothing but things or equipments that are used in a household. Housewares include kitchenware, furniture, bathroom accessories, and other decorative items. In general tables, utensils, buckets, cups, mugs, blankets, photo frames, bedding, and other small decorative articles are all categorized under housewares.img_9405
What Makes Indian Houseware Products Universal?
As mentioned earlier, Housewares are manufactured in all parts of the world and each country has its own unique type of products that are specifically designed to suit the particular country’s lifestyle and its climatic and topographical conditions. Sometimes the products may also reflect the cultural practices of the country. Though these unique products would not be found useful by the people of other countries, Indian products always have a great demand in the worldwide market and there are some specific reasons for the world to prefer Indian manufacturers of housewares.37944228_1752968851447808_4113519294409605120_n
Quality and Reliability
The basic expectation of a customer who buys any product is its quality. One does not want to spend their hard-earned money on products with mediocre quality and they also want the item to withstand wear and tear for a long time. Housewares manufactured in India have proven to be of greater quality and consumers find them more reliable.img_9406
Handcrafted Items
Crafting a thing with hands is an art and people who have a love for this art prefer buying handcrafted products as they see these things not only as a household item but as a symbol of art. India is famous for producing handcrafted items and their handicraft industry is well known for creating some of the best housewares.img_9186
Cultural Diversity
One of the main attractions of India is its cultural diversity. Each part of India is unique and has its own style of living and cultural practices. These cultural practices play a very important role in determining a household and one can witness different types of household items in different parts of India. When these items are put together under one market, it displays a wide variety of products giving customers more options to choose from.37282244_1738796692865024_6088412688096952320_n
Economical
Most of the housewares produced in India are manufactured by small scale industries. Some of them even manufacture these products at their houses and sell them at affordable rates. The rates are very low when compared to products manufactured by big companies without any compromise in quality.

Where to find the best Indian Housewares?
Though there are numerous markets all over India to host housewares, one can find only items that are manufactured in and around a particular city or a state at such markets. A huge variety of products from all over the country can only be witnessed during exhibitions and fairs which are occasional.684e6-29386247_1604312679646760_7131288364552028160_n

Gifts & Decorative Fair 2019 : EPCH

WHAT MAKES GIFT ARTICLES FROM INDIA MORE SPECIAL?

Meta: Gifts & Decoratives contribute largely to the export list of India as there is a huge demand for them in the global market for their uniqueness and quality.home decoration
As Einstein quoted “The important things are always simple”, it is human nature to get attracted to simple things and gift article manufacturers in India have made this their motto. Imagine yourself in a gift shop looking for an item to gift your special one. The shop may be a vast one with numerous collections or a small one with selective collections. Your eyes will always focus on items that are small and artistic as you want your gift to be often cute rather than being embellished.
Let us have a look at some of the other factors that make gift articles from India more special:27654443_1558218467589515_268421956797191235_n
India is a Land of Celebration
Indians are known for celebrations. The country has people of different religious beliefs living together and there will be at least two celebratory events in a month. When a country has more number of celebratory events, automatically the reputation of gift articles produced will be higher as creating and selling the same type of gifts will throw the manufacturer away from the market.684e6-29386247_1604312679646760_7131288364552028160_n
Handcrafted Gift Articles
When a particular item’s export rate is higher for a country, it means that the country excels in meeting the demands of the consumers in style. One such most demanded item in the global market is Handcrafted gift articles from India. Indians are highly skilful in creating beautiful handcrafted articles from clay, paper, copper, brass, and porcelain which are loved by people all around the world.37944228_1752968851447808_4113519294409605120_n
Paintings and Jewellery
Many foreigners touring India make space in their bags for paintings and handcrafted jewellery while returning back to their homeland. India has a long standing history for paintings and has produced some of the greatest painting works ever. The art is still being mastered by many aspiring painters whose works are sought by many to gift their special ones. When it comes to handcrafted jewellery, India stands tall in the global market as the pieces are state of the art and highly creative.house-handicraft-epch-in
Miniature Statues
Like painting sculpting is also an oldest art form mastered by the Indians. India is known for its idol worshiping practice and many foreigners who love the culture of India are interested in idol worshiping as well. The country produces some of the best miniature statues of gods out of different metals which are loved by many. Miniature statues of gods and goddesses are not only meant for those who worship them. They are also preferred by people who see them only as an artwork.26195783_1828071930556828_6315460491015230153_n
