SAHAJ KALANJALI 2020-21
Kalanjali is an annual solo exhibition organized during Navratri by Sahaj in Vadodara. This exhibition which started 20 years back has taken a shape of a movement. Our customer, friends and well wisher eagerly wait for the event.
For Sahaj, this is not just an event. This is an opportunity for us to interact with customers, get reviews, feedback, suggestions on products. We have constantly received the love and support from the community.
Kalanjali is a huge motivation for our women artisans who are in Dahod. Their handmade craft products are sold and liked by many from the urban areas. For these women artisans, preparing for Kalanjali is a matter of pride & self-respect and each product sold is a personal satisfaction for them.
Over the years we have made the products in Apperal, Life style and aceesories, Home decoration and Stationery and utilities.

All with one ultimate common goal: improving and creating livelihoods for families in rural India. #keepingtheconnection
Today we enjoyed our online workshop about online sales with the team of
Rangsutra Crafts India Ltd. and our expert Ellen Oord. We have fond memories to workshops with the same team in Bikaner and Delhi when our experts Joost Theunis and Cornelie Guise could do brainstorms in a much more fun way. Looking forward to those days to come again soon ?
Another milestone: we just had our 200th online session since April 2020. We worked with our partner AgroTIE's team on its financials. Expert Anita Joosten joined today and she shall continue to work on AgroTie's financials more in detail next week.
We are happy that we can continue our consultancy and mentoring online, but we count down the moment that travel is safe and we can meet our partners in India in person again ?.
