Discovering the soul of artistry
Punarnawa is a kaleidoscope of Crafts, Culture & Creativity. Punarnawa in Sanskrit (an ancient language of India) means - that which is restored or renewed.To create success stories in families by providing them with a new lease of life is the power mantra behind the label, Punarnawa.
Punarnawa operates to the highest ethical and sustainable standards, and we continue to prioritise people and environment over profits. We continue to reinvest our earnings into providing resources, training and development of our artisans. As a result, we do not offer any sales or discounts. We create eco friendly clothing with responsible materials and sustainable practices throughout the entire process. Punarnawa is headquartered in Rourkela, Odisha.
We envision an inclusive community where the historically marginalised population is completely self-reliant and enjoys an improved quality of life. Our vision is to enable, empower the underserved and socially disadvantaged groups by providing them training and transforming them into skilled artisans.
True to its name, Punarnawa aims to restore, revitalise some of India’s most treasured handlooms and handicrafts. Our goal is to provide highest quality products while balancing the ethical working conditions, fair wages, and social equality.
Our key values are self reliance, inclusivity and social responsibility. We see ourselves as a responsible and an ethical organisation with emphasis on fair wages, sustainable practices, preservation & promotion of Indian heritage, culture, equality & diversity.
