Indian art doesn’t wait for a professional canvas and a Kolinsky paint brush to draw a painting. A unique shaped rock, carving tools, colorful flowers and artistic hands can also create a marvelous piece-of-art.
And that’s why Indian art is in high demand across the world!
Around 3 years back, SouvNear decided to discover the authentic and ethnic crafts of India and reach out to art connoisseurs around the world via Amazon. The intent was to create a profitable business out of this demand while contributing to artisans’ sustenance.
We surveyed the trends, needs and tastes of the West, and business viability before we jumped into the business. The most important research was around exploring different art-forms of India and hand-selecting the right products. This helped create a unique art repository that matched the needs and tastes of SouvNear’s audience.
And today, after an interesting learning curve of almost 3 years, SouvNear is one of the most popular sellers of artisan-crafted artifacts from India on Amazon.
This popularity can be attributed to not only selling in the US and EU countries, but also ensuring 100% customer satisfaction.
Here’s a quick snippet of recent customer feedback on Amazon Seller Central
And a few snapshots of reviews by customers on Amazon.com:
This one is for a square wooden tissue box with brass inlay-work from SouvNear…
This review is for a Meenakari elephant sculpture from our Amazon Storefront…
This one is for a keepsake box on Amazon…
The list of such feedbacks is endless but the purpose here is to showcase the love people have for SouvNear handicrafts and more importantly, the tremendous scope of selling these handicrafts and making profits at a bigger level.
This fact can further be validated with SouvNear’s sales on Amazon that crossed $3 million till June 2015 with over 100000 units sold.
After this remarkable success, SouvNear has now taken the next big step in its journey and moved to a wholesale site for handmade products. The easy-to-use website allows resellers, aspiring entrepreneurs, full timers and part-timers to buy Indian handicrafts in bulk at wholesale prices and resell at bigger profit margins via Amazon, individual websites and offline gift shops.
Initially, this wholesale business was created on SouvNear’s sister site, Odocart.com. But wholesale was moved to SouvNear.com itself to empower our resellers to sell for SouvNear and take this business to the next level.
So basically, all the sales (and added growth in the year 2016) on Amazon is up for grabs for resellers who either want to sell for us using the SouvNear brand or for those who want to sell under their own label.
