Handcrafted jewellery, organic sustainable fabrics, organically dyed handwoven apparel and beautifully crafted products for your home, there is a different treasure for everyone to discover and appreciate," Sadhana Talwar Mehta, Founder of 'The Wishlist', said in a statement.

Some of the participating brands and artisans are Aavaran Udaipur by Alka Sharma.

Vraj:Bhoomi Ahmedabad by Bhoomi Dani, Urvashi Kaur by Urvashi Kaur, IDAM- a print and surface design studio that creates contemporary and handcrafted home decor products are some of the other brands participating.
