Fabindia works closely with artisans by providing various inputs including design, quality control, access to raw materials and production coordination. The vision continues to be to maximize the hand made element in our products, whether it is handwoven textiles, hand block printing, hand embroidery or handcrafting home products.

No goods are returned back to suppliers, even if they were supplied late or had any variation in terms of color and design Suppliers flourished with Fabindias growth
