5 years back, since project rangamaati was initiated our philosophy and vision was and is to bring the Artisan and the Art Lover face to face…We dreamt of telling the stories behind the artwork…wanted to create ” PATRONS Not Customers ” …wanted them to understand the untold story of the artisan’s Life, their agony of Poverty,non-recognition and scarcity yet their Love for Art, and Intangible Culture.

Our Patrons are most kind and encouraging and their passion about our products Applauded Upon and is the BEST Appreciation of the artisans and our Hard work. ..

Our artisans put a lot of painstakingly tiring effort to Create these artwork be it Kantha Stitching, Hand Dyeing with Natural Dyes of Dokra handcraft Jewelry to complex Block printed Ajrakh or Dabu… As such words of appreciation always boost these rural women spirit, self-esteem and confidence and they start believing in themselves and try to deliver “better than last time ” outcome thus enhancing the Artwork.

We would Love to Share all of their words of Encouragement and Motivation, presenting few who have been with us for a long long time 🙂

 

When Patrons such as Mrs. Neelima Shimhadri takes it upon themselves and DEMAND , Quality in the Lives of Artisans who made the Clothes 👚.. We could along with Our Artisans fold Our Hands in prayer and ask for well being of such kind Patron.
Its Your Love which has made rangamaati what it is today… a true platform where Art lovers and Artisans Meet ..understand Art and its Making Process and Art lovers adopts Artwork as a way to establish sustainable development in Artisans Life. Looking very Best and Sporting our recent collection of Muslin Cotton Saree with All Natural Dye Tarapur Hand Block Printed at her lovely home @ Houston Texas.
I always love Matt finish and Earthy colors as they illuminate me, Energize me ……. I wore rangamaati’s saree during this Years’s Durga Puja at AirForce Officers Colony, Madhya Pradesh and everyone stopped me and asked about my saree and obviously, it made me feel so uniquely special  ……your collection made this puja so very special. Love the rawness of the Gicha Silk and highlighted Resham Aanchal combination.

Past 4 Years I have always loved your & Weavers Effort. The Quality & Richness of the Material and vibrancy of colors make your every saree unique and stand out in the crowd. They are the perfect blend of traditional weaving and Modern Style. I had ordered this Linen Saree with Zari Woven Aanchal and Border for this Year’s Durga Puja and I  totally loved it.. .. Honestly got a lot of appreciation for this Saree from the fellow residents.of Housing Complex where we celebrate Durga Puja among 600+ families.

The Linen Saree is so easy to carry, comfortable to wear and the richness of Linen with Zari makes it truly traditionally smart. Looking forward to more such creative Experiments with fabrics, artwork and feel good factor.I am really proud to have such a nice, precious collection in my wardrobe… It became possible only because of RANGAMAATI as this is the ultimate place to have authentic Indian artwork….please convey my heartiest thanks to all those great artisans…

It’s an excellent effort put towards a unique concept by Sanjay and Dipa. I feel they are putting in their best to support the artisans of Bengal in a very sustainable way. It’s great that they are doing it against the challenge of other fully commercial players.

   This Year I had my first Saree presented by my parents for the Durga Puja..being the first saree of my Life ,it had to be special however I should be able to drape it and carry it with ease,first thing that struck me at rangamaati was  affordability, the low price range to high; they had some gorgeous Sarees to cover every budget. Resham Cotton Silk saree in my favorite Turquoise Blue with Red border had me all mesmerized. The Saree is not only gorgeous but so easy and hassle-free to carry. Enjoyed a lot , thank You rangamaati for making my first Saree memorable.

My friend Papiya introduced me to rangamaati , she being a Bengali always wore some gorgeous Sarees during any festive days ,so when she referred me to rangamaati’s collection and project rangamaati as a whole I instantly felt very connected to the social cause and fell in love with their Sarees, Papiya knew every Saree by name but I seemed to love them all, and I wanted them all. I loved the colors, texture, weaving patterns and the look and feel of them.

I being a Maharashtrian always thought Bengal sarees were difficult to drape and carry , but the way they drape a woman’s body is so very comfortable.  Traditional, elegant, Fashionable, modern smart and ethnic, all at the same time making the wearer stand out in the crowd.

My Son brought this Handwoven handloom saree for Durga Puja this Year, I always used to wear either silk or Chiffon Georgette Sarees…the saree being handwoven had a certain soft feel and absorbed sweat & perspiration automatically leaving me dry & fresh…I understand handloom sarees are the best suit for the hot & humid climate of Bengal.I guess I  have started to like handwoven sarees over synthetic sarees, So why risk myself with synthetic fibers when having Bengal’s own cotton made clothing to rely on for healthier and less risky clothes?

Thank You rangamaati for making me feel realize the difference and accepting handloom as the way of clothing now onwards.

   Being Married to a Bengali Wife and staying outside Bengal,visiting in laws at Kolkata during During Durga Puja is a must. While the women always wore traditional dresses during the puja days, it felt bit spoilsport wearing denim and Tshirts. I bought this Typical Bengali combination and wore it during Ashtami Anjali & community cultural program. Everyone went wow on seeing the rich combination of Silk, zari, and woven designs. I always avoid silk dress materials as I find them cumbersome, but, I could not resist this one. But, throughout that evening that I wore this typical Bengali attire, I did not feel even once I was in silk. The material was lighter and I could move around freely.
Thank you for making such awesome garments rangamaati.Mr. Abhishek Naidu. Manager – Capita IT Enterprise Services | Car Fanatic. 
So much said over social media already 🙂 – what could I say more about your designs which are absolutely traditional – where Style meets weavers effort and gorgeous result every time. Be it my first khadi Cotton handwoven sarees, to the Resham Matka Silk splendors the saree I chose for my Diwali night was very much appreciated by all my friends and family. The pure bright pinkish red bordered bright electric blue Resham Matka saree was a stand out in the crowd I would say.
Thank you and keep coming with such creative elegant designs.

The Twin Size Beautiful Kantha Blanket Quilt Handmade Bedspread is exactly as pictured–beautiful, lightweight, and a great decor addition. Just as expected. I really wanted these dimensions to fit my daughter’s bed size. this being my third purchase from rangamaati they always arrive fast, are packaged well and are so beautiful. This one might be my daughter’s favorite. The patches stitched and the colors are amazing and the amount of detail that goes into each of these creates a work of art. The sheer amount of selection to be had at this store makes it much like shopping a real marketplace without having to travel. These are perfect for gifting, as well as around the house. I know I will be back!

It is really hard to find Organic Cloth with Natural Organic Dye in Canada. My purchase of handwoven Muslin Cotton Stole being Naturally Indigo Dyed in Shibori stitch dyed pattern was a real piece of artwork. The soft subtleness of handwoven Cotton and hand-dyed with Organic Indigo is the best accessories for special parties I attend.

These are really brilliant. Really helpful seller too. Their shop website is really good and filled with such hard worked laborious artworks from Bengal & India.

This lovely handwoven saree I wore to attend cultural program at our Housing Complex, felt awesome being floored with the compliments that kept on coming and coming. The strength of handwoven Khadi with a blend of Solid Self Colors and a broad border is real eye capturing.

I love their limited edition collection of exquisite Traditional Ethnic works, also they are always experimenting with Organic Fabrics, Natural Dyes, and art patterns that could combine Bengals weavers effort with artisans from different states and absolutely bring before us something ” wow”, a great initiative I proudly feel associated with 🙂
