Bead 'n Shop is an online bead and jewelry store, owned by Maruti International ® (India), a business registered with the Directorate General of Foreign Trade, the Registrar of Indian firms and the Export Promotion Council of Handicrafts of India.
Established in 2002, Maruti International ® has become well known for providing the finest quality Lac and Kashmiri products both abroad and locally, participating in Indian handicrafts and gift fairs. In 2004, Maruti Int'l. ® registered with the DGFT and the EPCH and began exporting their high quality products, offering them at unbeatable prices.
We are growing internationally, yet we will continue to provide our products to local markets and other Indian buyers and exporters.
The majority of Indian handicrafts are created on a job-to-job basis and this is the case with our beads. Our Lac and Kashmiri bead production is a Cottage Industry, with no "middle man" involved. Beads are originally designed and produced exclusively for Bead 'n Shop.
The raw materials and supplies needed to produce our beads are regularly checked for quality assurance and provided to (9) of our own Artisans working from home.
These artists are not trained by us, but rather learned their skills from family members who have been creating Lac and Kashmiri products for generations. When you purchase from Bead 'n Shop, you offer these artists opportunity to sell their work, thereby providing them with a better standard of living.
