Asha Handicrafts endeavors to ensure that the benefits of handicraft production reach the craftspeople themselves.
Asha represents only:
  1. Actual craft producing families, such as those who make the Wooden items, Carpets and Paper Mache from the North and leather items from the East.
  2. Government approved cooperatives, who have received Government financial and marketing assistance. Under this group are the numerous hand-weaving and basket-making centers of South and Central India.
  3. Institutional work, which was established during the last century by overseas missionary organizations. This covers the embroidery, lace and novelty items.
Asha Handicrafts has not only provided a ready market for these centers, but has also assisted them by providing marketing assistance, furnishing technical advice and, in some cases, raising financial help for expansion and diversification.
