We are a passionate team of entrepreneurs and in 2013, we decided to take a moonshot at building a consolidated portal to help businesses source from the fragmented market of the under-discovered $20 Billion global world of Indian handmade products. The intent was to make the Indian artisan/small manufacturer compete globally and remove the multiple tiers of middlemen!
Today, after delivering more than a quarter of a million orders to both consumers and businesses, more than 15,000+ curated products, and with scores of manufacturers/artisans working with us in our managed B2B portal, we are getting closer to the moon.
We Now Work Out of 3 Continents
We have offices now across 3 countries and we are just a phone call/message away!

We Make Wholesale Buying Easy...
SouvNear is a ‘managed’ marketplace. We follow this model as our artisans/manufacturers generally do not speak English and cannot communicate with Global customers.
We create all listings, manage all orders and deliveries and are responsible for quality. We have built technology tools to enable our services to work seamlessly – right from placing an order to delivery at your store.
We enable you to buy small to large quantities easily. You will need to reach out to us only for assistance in getting specific quotes or for buying large and heavy products which require ocean freight.

Our Business Buyers Love Our Products and Our Service...
“I recently placed my first order from souvnear.com and I must say that I was incredibly surprised to see the orders delivered so fast especially when the product shipped from India. I have other vendors that have product state side and take twice as long. Shipping was also very reasonable, allowing me to keep my retail price very affordable. I must say that I have had comments from various customers how beautiful the product is and the delicate and artistic art work put into these hand crafted items.”

“As the buyer for the University of Pittsburgh's Nationality Rooms Gift Center, I am constantly on the lookout for handmade, quality gifts for our customers. Having a popular attraction in the Indian Nationality Room, and our large Indian population at the University, I found SouvNear's Leather and Silk Journals to be a quality and affordable addition to our merchandise assortment. The quality of workmanship is quite remarkable, at a reasonable price! The Customer Service Team has also been very helpful in resolving any issues in a quick and efficient manner! Thanks!”

Handmade Sells... At a Premium
The Global market for handmade products is $235 Billion. Share of Indian handmade ~ 20 Billion. This is much below potential as sourcing from India is not easy – the artisans and craftsmen are spread across India in very remote locations.
Now, we have made this possible – our sourcing team is spread across India.
We carry contemporary, daily use products which are hot selling across the globe (we checked by selling on the Amazons of the world and have now sold a few million dollars of merchandise there. And these listings are now available to our business buyers!!) Reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.

Yes, We Want to Positively Impact Millions of Artisans
Our core vision is to make a big impact and ensure a better quality of life for the 9 million+ artisans in India. In addition to vendors who represent thousands of artisans in the unorganized crafts’ sector, we work with NGOs that are already trying to improve artisans' lives.
Keep watching as we expand our product listings to other countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Nepal, Sri Lanka, etc. and become the largest business portal for handmade goods.
