India’s amazing ancient bazaars that have unlimited treasures to choose from are just outside our door.

With a Native Indian working on your behalf, we’ll make sure you get the best price without compromising quality.
You might be wondering why we would put integrity as an area of specialty? Simply because that is our highest priority in every aspect of the services we offer. If we win in only one thing, we want it to be integrity.

Is it your dream to start your own clothing brand?
As an emerging country and market, the manufacturing industry has yet to be weighed down by middle men and an abundance of low-quality products. There are opportunities for higher quality products at lower prices here in India. This is why it’s the perfect place to do business and why product sourcing and garment production from India can increase your profits.
Artisan Crafts & Trades
There are so many talented artisans in India that carry on the tradition of creating as they’ve done for centuries. However, many of these amazing artisans and crafts are slowly being replaced by large scale and fast production by machines.
We are excited to connect buyers with artisans to keep these hand made crafts and the villages where they are making them continue the traditions.
Beautiful hand loomed fabrics, wood work, ceramics, painted crafts, furniture, embroidery, jewelry, gypsy bags and leather items are just a few of the stunning work done by Indian artisans.
Personalized Buying Trips
For decades business owners have been coming to India so search near and far for beautiful and unique treasures. However, landing in India and expecting to have everything run smoothly is a challenge. With language barriers, inexperience with doing business in India and not having a clear idea of where to go to shop or do production isn’t always the best recipe for success.
By hiring us to organize your travel itinerary for buying trips, schedule meetings with suppliers and having us accompany you will boost your productivity while in India and, ultimately, higher financial gains in the future.

We love to support businesses that are stepping up and contributing to protection of the environment.
Why We Are Different
Your sourcing and production dynamic duo (Rahul and Amy) offer the perspective and experience of both India and the United States. We live and work in India. We are on the ground sourcing, shopping, negotiating and shipping on your behalf.
You aren’t working with an agent sitting in the US coordinating with vendors they’ve never met who aren’t familiar with how things actually work in India. We have firsthand knowledge and hands-on experience. We have been doing production and going on buying trips throughout India for years, so we understand how things work, where to buy, what the wholesale prices are, when to buy and the system or custom production and logistics of shipping.
There is no learning curve to struggle through. We have made mistakes along the way and learned from them, so you don’t have to! It’s all smooth sailing from here.
India has so much to offer at affordable prices that makes doing business in India a real game changer but in all honesty, it’s not the easiest place to navigate both logistically and culturally so having a team working on your behalf will streamline the process to save you time and money.
With a native Hindi speaker who understands the ins and outs of how things work in India, has a relationship with excellent vendors & artisans built up over years of working and a partnership with a garment factory as well as being knowledgeable about the logistics of shipping – this is an ace in your pocket. A local connection working on your behalf is worth gold in India.
And I bring a Western perspective and professional experience that knows what our International clientele expects and we deliver! I oversee all orders from beginning to end to ensure quality control and secure shipping.
We respect our clients time and investment and do our utmost to deliver orders with customer service that exceeds expectation and is built on trust. We like to build relationships that continue for years to come.
How it Works
The process is pretty straight forward. Clients make a request/order by sending us images of what they want . We find the merchandise, provide a quote and fulfill the order.
If you want a custom order or specialty item(s) we find suppliers that can create what you want and we get it done.
It’s the same with custom garment production. You can tell us what you want and we will make sure, send us samples and we will use those to create your garments. Or we can create garment samples from scratch. We will be in touch throughout the entire process to make sure it’s exactly what you want.
What is the process?
Call, email, or fill out a product request quote below. The more details on predicted quantity, target price, and product specs the better. Often, we will ask for a sample from you. We will connect with vetted manufactures, get a sample made, and figure out a landed cost for you at your zip code. From there, you decide to source the product or not!
How do you charge for your product sourcing services?
Do you require minimum orders?
We do not require a minimum order. However, some of the vendors that may be filling your order may request minimum orders. This will be discovered during the research phase.
What is the process for custom garment and accessory production?
Send us a message about your project or what item(s) you want. The more details on predicted quantity, target price, and product specs the better. Often, we will ask for a sample from you depending on your request. We will connect with vetted manufactures, get a sample made, and figure out a landed cost for you at your zip code.
What is the process for payments?
Each order is unique due to the services requested and quantity ordered. Many projects are done in phases, so this may alter the payment process.
In most cases we require 50% up front and the balance due prior to shipping.
For foreign payments we use Transferwise (www.transferwise) the fastest, most affordable and secure means of cash transfer.
I came to India on a sourcing and buying trip for my clothing lined which is based in the US. Amy and Rahul researched vendors for me to visit across India, assisted with price negotiations and coordinated the logistics and scheduling for the trip and the accompanied me as well which was a godsend since I had never been to India before and felt quite overwhelmed. The contacts I made and production of my custom textiles has really been amaizing for my business. They have also made branded packaging for me and helped with ongoing project managemnt and sourcing for me.
I highly recommend them, I could not have done this alone.
