About Us

karigar-around-always-about-us

Around Always is a culmination of the vision of Shreya Goenka embodying two ideas – Indian local craft preservation through modernization and customization for customer satisfaction. We have modest experience in embroidered and handcrafted products utilized for creating products that are one of its kind. We specialize in handcrafted – footwear, cushion covers, and wall frames. We employ vegan leather and fabric with traditional hand embroidery techniques to create sustainable pieces that are perfect for contemporary settings. We take this opportunity to also support local craftsmen in Kolkata, India and preserve their wonderful craft from extinction – They have been around for centuries creating some of the most intricately carved hand-made exquisite designs globally! It all started with the exposure of our Founder to the traditional Indian crafts at NIFT. It blossomed into a business once she observed great dearth of such crafts locally. We have come a long way, having started from a small apartment in Kolkata, India making cushion covers. It has expanded into a full suite of products where customers face issues with personalized requirements. Our products are made carefully and exclusively made for you because we know YOU ARE SPECIAL… and… We like to KEEP IT THAT WAY!!
