What does “mubhi” mean?
The name mubhi is inspired by Bhumi (that means earth in Hindi). We create beautifully designed products from India, which connect people to the environment, sustainably.
Matti in Hindi means mud. mubhi is focused on designing products that are not only inspiring but also sustainable. Valuing earthly resources is one of our prime criteria as we design and manufacture products.
Where are mubhi products designed?
All the products are designed at our mubhi studio located in Bangalore, India. Each product is uniquely inspired by the Indian way of life. Artisans from various parts of India handcraft most parts of the products. At mubhi, we seamlessly fuse new technologies with handcrafted parts to create a stunning and unique product experience. We guarantee the authenticity of every product we sell.
Where do you source the raw material?
We use native craft and local material as a source of inspiration to create authentic products that retain their essence. Sometimes, we mix more than two craft to create something magical. As of now, 96% of the raw material is sourced within India. In some cases we source from outside India based on various quality and availability criteria.
What is the mubhi policy on artisans and craftspeople?
mubhi takes the utmost care to respect the creativity and individuality of every artisan and craftsperson, while creating our products. We employ the finest artisans and craftspeople from across India. On an average more than six different people work on each product we sell, so that it meets our quality standards and guidelines.
We have streamlined fair price policies, which don’t undercut prices for the work done by anyone. Our supply chain focuses on increasing efficiency by using the latest technologies and processes. This helps the artisans and craftspeople to focus on their work, and creates a sustainable work life balance.
Decent work believes in social integration and provides dignity and security of labor. It sums up the aspirations of people in their working lives. It involves opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration.
