Singular, distinctive and truly exceptional, Eka is your trusted source for an eclectic collection of Indian lifestyle products that reflect the culture, art, craftsmanship and diversity of the country and its people. Designed to enrich spaces and lifestyles, our products are handcrafted from natural materials and sourced directly from traditional artisans, NGOs engaged in preserving Indian art forms or select manufacturers who custom craft products to our designs and specifications. Which is why, many of our products are exclusive to Eka. And all of them have stories to tell. Stories that truly resonate India's heritage of art, craft and culture.
Eka opened its doors for the first time in April 2000 to cater to a discerning audience in central Bangalore and soon became the preferred destination for eclectic handcrafted Indian treasures. Nearly 20 glorious years in business, Eka has gathered a tribe of loyal followers who appreciate All Things Indian and Beautiful. We now proudly extend our legacy beyond geographic borders to cater to a larger online community of like-minded people.
Eka continues to remain Proudly Indian. All our products are sourced from within the domestic market - directly from artisan clusters, independent designers, NGOs & Fair-Trade organizations or select domestic & export manufacturers who are willing to custom-craft products to Eka’s design and quality specifications. We cater to the globe-trotting Indian soul that demands international quality, but loves design that is rooted in Indian aesthetics.
Eka is committed to showcasing unique, high quality and design rich products that preserve and interpret traditional or native crafts in a contemporary urban context. All Eka products are handcrafted from natural materials such as wood, metal, stone, glass, bone & horn, clay, ceramic, fabric, paper etc. We actively avoid mass production and the use of plastics. In all that we do, we consciously endeavour to protect and preserve the environment.
