Fabindia, founded in 1960, is an online shopping site for hand woven garments for men & women, and home furnishing. Fabindia's products are natural, craft based and contemporary.
Fabindia links over 40,000 craft based rural producers to modern urban markets, thereby creating a base for skilled, sustainable rural employment and preserving India's traditional handicrafts in the process.
Fabindia promotes inclusive capitalism, through its unique COC (community owned companies) model. The COC model consists of companies, which act as value adding intermediaries, between rural producers and Fabindia.
Fabindia is large private platform for products that derive from traditional crafts and knowledge. A large proportion of these are sourced from villages across India where the company works closely with the artisans, providing various inputs including design, quality control, access to finance and raw materials.
