OUR STORY

How we started

Born as a result of a lifelong infatuation towards ceramics, Nitara is the brain child of Karishma, a fashion design graduate. We are a design studio that currently focus on ceramics. We create minimal pieces that make a statement with the belief that minimal does not equate to boring. Each ceramic piece that bears our name is handmade by local artisans in and around Calcutta. Our glass and metalware are made by artisans in India. They are produced by local factories in their specific districts. We believe in fair trade and sustainability. We are proud to say that we are a plastic free when it comes to our packaging, having found paper alternatives to bubble wrap. 

Handmade

All our pieces are handmade by local artisans. These are local potters, metal-smiths  and glass workers who have been in the same trade for generations.

Sustainable

We believe in being sustainable and try and not harm the planet with our practices. We believe in re purposing and using as little single use plastic as we possibly can.

Customizable

ethical
