artNweaves was founded in 2015 by Bhargavi Pappuri with a mission to promote Indian handicrafts and handmade products. Initially, the platform showcased over 1000 artifacts from various regions across the country. However, the team soon realized that it was challenging to cater to individual orders as most artisans were only interested in bulk orders. To overcome this challenge, Bhargavi took up the challenge to create her product range of handmade soaps and herbal shampoos. She got herself trained and certified at Khadi College in 2015 to 2016 to create high-quality products.
Post the training, artNweaves procured a license from the Department of Ayush and launched its product range in the premium segment. The product range includes transparent and non-transparent glycerin soaps, cow ghee herbal soaps, medicated soaps, herbal shampoos, shower gels, and face washes. Bhargavi created the entire product range from scratch, ensuring safety and quality at all levels. She puts in a lot of personal touch and dedication to every step of the process to achieve customer satisfaction.
artNweaves does not reach out to the market to promote its products. Instead, most of our customers are individuals, B2B, B2C and MSMEs who have used our products or have been referred by their friends, family or business associates and approached us to promote products on artNweaves or in white labeling formats. Today, artNweaves also creates products for third parties who are looking for quality handmade soaps and herbal shampoos in third-party manufacturing or white labeling formats for multiple clients in Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Goa, Lonavala, Mumbai etc.
Bhargavi is supported by her spouse, Sriram Pappuri, who quit his corporate job in a TATA Group company to help build the brand. Together, they are first-generation entrepreneurs. The artNweaves products are generally placed in premium Super markets & stores, organic stores, e-commerce portals like Bigbasket, Amazon, and other like-minded e-commerce websites such as MINTORIE, IndicBrands, and IndiMandi. The company owes its success to the Late Shri Shashi Kumar, who trained Bhargavi on all aspects to create high-quality and premium products with a lot of personal touch and dedication.
