We believe that what makes a great product is not just the price, but the quality of its materials and craftsmanship. Each product has a story; from where its materials were gathered, to who constructed the item. Our team at GAURI KOHLI ® invests a lot of time and energy in curating and designing our products to finding grassroots artisans who handcraft each piece of our product range to sustainable materials and processes. From understanding global decor trends to exploring colors and materials, our creative yet methodical process ultimately presents our customers with only the best to choose from. The materials we use are ethically sourced and handpicked for quality, durability and attractiveness. From semiprecious stones like lapis lazuli used in marble handicrafts to fine grade camel bone used for decorative trays and furniture to pure metals used in brass statues, we keep a strict check from the start. Our competent team of field associates works alongside our artisans to maintain quality during the manufacturing process. After arriving at our facility, each curated piece is then screened for its level of craftsmanship and material standards. The products are then well packed and shipped to our warehouses around the world, ready to be dispatched and delivered to our discerning customers within a short span of time.
