Who We Are
Bhavishya, a trust for crafts and craftspeople,working to support traditional Indian craftspeople, many of them women and village based, with the objective of helping craftspeople regain their place in the economic mainstream, in a country where the craft sector is second only to agriculture in providing employment.
What We Do
Bhavishya carries out its mission through advocacy with governmental, non-governmental & foreign agencies; as consultant, evaluator & resource provider to craftgroups and as organiser of direct retail marketing platforms in its popular Bazaars and Exhibitions, bringing together craftspeople, producer groups, environmental organisations, social activists & cultural performers with urban consumers, students and international buyers.
Bhavishya assists craftspeople through support service activities such as capacity building workshops, skills training, collaborative design innovation and product development; helping them transform traditional skills into products that have contemporary appeal, thereby providing craft communities with a source of permanent employment and sustained earning.
Bhavishya is a brand name for quality craft from genuine producers and the main focus remains the Indian urban retail market and customer.
The second important step is to help them set up their own businesses by providing the initial support such as raw material, boutique shop, sewing machines, handicraft shops, etc.

Craft is an economic resource available with a large number of people living in rural areas, particularly those who are not engaged in agriculture. It can be used to improve their socio-economic condition, and thus prevent their migration to urban areas, often accompanied with terrible social consequences. Bhavishya is a non profit organozation based in Frankfurt, Germany, functioning as a social enterprise. Founded in 2015, Bhavishya is committed to promote Indian crafts, by focusing on innovation and creativity. We work in close collaboration with the master weavers, NGOs. It aims to develop crafts based enterprises and explore new and commercially sustainable models of livelihood generation. Bhavishya is supported by various government and international organizations.
