AnanTaya- an immediate whisper of this word, brings to fore a colorful contemporary world of handmade products that bespeak the language of beauty blended with culture. Each product shares a story, traversing through ages, travelling endlessly through time and space with their luster and magnificence reflecting timeless accents.
How It Began
The idea to open the AnanTaya store was conceptualized by Geetanjali Kasliwal when she was expecting her second daughter in the year 2006. A fervent connoisseur of traditional Indian culture and admirer of beautiful things, Geetanjali was spellbound looking at the craftsmanship of artisans. She, along with her husband Ayush Kasliwal, who is a world-renowned designer and owner of AKFD, made efforts to create a treasure trove of contemporary crafted ideas in the form of AnanTaya.
The Experiential Store
The products, ranging from lamps to mirrors and opulent desk accessories to exquisite table accents, narrate the tale of timeless aesthetic décor. The experiential store is essentially a craft and culture institute engaging artisans which form the ecosystem. The vision of AnanTaya is to provide sustainable income to artisans by promoting artisan-made products and creating a profitable business.
Vision and Achievements
