We Are MIZIZI
MIZIZI means “roots” in Swahili. We celebrate India’s rich culture by recognizing the momentousness of its roots, manifested in our fine handicrafts and handlooms.
We are an online platform showcasing the vibrancy and mesmerizing beauty of Indian handicrafts. MIZIZI is here to add a pinch of culture and authenticity into your modern lifestyles.
“Making Handicrafts Mainstream”
Handicrafts promote a country’s heritage through use of indigenous materials, preserving traditional knowledge, talents and crafts. We want to preserve, promote and popularize this authentic craft by contemporizing it to suit evolving fashion and décor trends, thus making it MAINSTREAM.
Handicrafts in the mainstream will help artisans prosper and further their art. Handicrafts deserve admirers and we aim to increase the population of admirers by making handicrafts accessible and trendy. We promote sustainable handicrafts made of indigenous materials.
From Dhokra artifacts and terracotta pottery, to intricate hand embroidered and other traditional types of clothing like Malkha and Bhujodi, we want to engrain contemporary fine art in the daily lives of people through affordable products.
Artisans strive to preserve your ancient cultures through their gentle art. Mizizi works with these artisans, designers, NGOs and social enterprises.

We aim to reduce the dependence of our consumers on non-environment friendly products. Handicrafts are natural for being made of and are sustainable, having a resale value.
