"A glass pitcher, a wicker basket, a tunic of coarse cotton cloth...their beauty is inseparable from their function. Handicrafts belong to a world existing before the separation of the useful and the beautiful."
Mexican Poet & Writer.
Nobel Prize for Literature 1990.
Performing our passion, bead by bead, since 2016 the longing to cull and curate objects of use and beauty took us to dwellings across 9 Indian states. We sold these curated artifacts through stalls set up at Organic Bazaars, Shopping Malls, Educational Institutions and many such spaces.
For a short period of time, we sold a variety of eco-friendly handicrafts at our store in the coastal city of Visakhapatnam.
The online store is a natural progression to our journey, owing to the overwhelming response from our customers.
Meme offers handicrafts procured from artisans, NGOs and Fair Trade Organisations working towards welfare of artisan communities. We sell handicrafts that are eco-friendly, reasonable and exquisite. We select the best artifacts crafted by hand through processes that are traditional.
Each time you buy a meme from us, you take home or gift a slice of culture.
Our young team consists of a passionate development professional, a committed engineer, a talented visual artist and a creative commerce graduate. Join us as we deliver handcrafted miracles to your doorstep!
We, at Meme, believe that all life is connected. We believe consistency is a fulfilling experience; the ability to perform routine tasks with a new set of experiences is a creative process. Handicrafts are a gentle reminder of this truth.
The word Meme is an idea, behavior, style transferred from one individual to another. Meme is an element passed from one human to another through cultured replication. Memes can be transferred through writings, paintings, rituals and gestures.
Our logo, the endless loop is a replication of a 3000 year, Megalithic rock-bruising from Mahbubnagar district of Telangana. This image is probably the earliest representation of all life being connected. Meme is about celebrating diversity and interconnectedness of life through works of art produced by artisans across India.
