Don’t miss the gem if you’re interested in shopping in Pondicherry. I stopped in while passing by and ended up with four high-quality reasonably priced kurtas. The woman who runs the shop is really kind, patient and passionate. Everything is made by tribal people with the proceeds going back to them. I went into a few stores in the more central area and found this one to be the best value.

Found the range of perfumes and essential oils to be very interesting. Rare to see if anybody would go empty handed from this place. Display is good with courteous staff.

My friend and I were soo pleasantly surprised and happy to have visited this absolutely amazing store. I had read the top spots to shop and had written the name down since it was near another site we loved (handmade paper factory) so decided to do a stop by - one hour and many thousands later we were v v happy! Dimple and her team do such a great job with both their visiting customer but also with showcasing their product - each and every product has a story and comes from an organizing that is working with uplifting society as a whole. From the baskets made by blind women in Chennai to the intricate designs on the clothes from women in Rajasthan - we could not go wrong!! When I visit Pondy again I will be making sure I go back! Thank you team!

Located in Heritage Town, near the Ashram HandMade Paper Factory, Kriti is a must see if you are visiting Pondicherry. With products ranging from baskets, jewellery, clothes, bed linen, bags, laptop sleeves, and eatables, this small quaint shop has something for everyone. I had visited the store 2 years ago and loved it and went back to it again on my recent visit.
An eco-boutique, Kriti supports eco-developmental projects. This means that there is a story behind each product. And the proprietor, Dimple helps you not just understand this indigenous art and crafts better but also learn the empowering role this initiative plays.
With vivid colours and sourced from natural materials, the products are attractive and trendy! Whether you are looking for new additions to your style or want to gift someone, you are sure to find something that is perfect.
Recommendations - check out the beeswax lip balms and other ointments. These are really good. They also store 5 different varieties of honey, and I am on my first now and look forward to trying them all out. :)

Lovely little treasure trove.Its a Fair-trade shop. Loved the sheets, coasters and all the little knick knacks. Totally worth a look. It's also heart warming to know the artisans get a decent price for their wares!

We stumbled across Dimple and her gorgeous shop - she is passionately focussed about her work.
She is passionate about helping disadvantaged women and supports 11 NGO by selling their products in her shop
She has a range of goods - spices, honey , clothing, gifts and jewellery
Very clean shop , well priced and good quality.
There are plenty of places to buy products but come on sisters and lets empower women by buying their products - so their children and they can have better lives
Thank you Dimple

Beautiful, high quality clothing and household items (pillows, bedspreads) at great prices. And when you shop there you are benefitting a vulnerable population of village women. The owner is very friendly and passionate about the work of the craftspeople. i wish we had an outlet in the US.

I really love this shop and it is the good place to find nice gifts for yourself or for friends: there are many types of products, like food, beauty products, clothes, artisanat, house items... and everything has an ethical background: food is organic, products come from tribes... I always go check what they have. My favorite product is the mug with tribal art reproduced on it. And on top the owner is very sweet. I am sure you will find there something you like (and the prices are good too).
