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.
Sankara Imports believes that social impact and understanding can be made through the exchange of ideas and art. You can learn more about us here. Or you can find out more about our artists here. You can also find out more about our charitable partners here.

Charity of the Month
Sheroes’ Hangout is a coffee shop in Agra run by survivors of acid attacks. The coffee shop vibe allows for the recognition and social interaction of these (primarily) women survivors. Not only do they run the cafe, but the women work together to form a network of empowerment and social change.
