Welcome to Sankara Imports
Sankara Imports is an ethically traded shop full of treasures from India, Nepal, and Turkey. Every piece in the shop was selected by Katey and Francesca who work directly with the artisans. Through their work with the artisans, Sankara is able to bring you beautiful, unique pieces at affordable prices that you can feel good in and about! Sankara also works with a variety of charities in India and Nepal with at least 5% of each purchase being donated to bring about positive change.
