DIwali message 2021
As we complete a year of being around as an e-commerce website, I would like to thank you for trusting us and helping us grow. In turn you have helped us support over 100 artisans, women entrepreneurs - many of whom are mompreneurs trying to find a new meaning to self confidence and self love and of course the small businesses that support the Made in India dream.
The brands and artisans we represent work tirelessly to bring you beautiful handcrafted products, wooden toys, Montessori toys, handmade items, educational kits and more. We strive to better ourselves, our curation and the overall experience in the days to come.
We had started off with a dream that is constantly adapting to the need of the hour and your requirements. We have been serving you through the Pandemic and the many lockdowns and hope to be able to grow with your support beyond this, as things open up.
We look forward to being your preferred store for birthday gifts, return gifts, festive and diwali gifts. We strive to ship faster, cheaper and offer you all the amazing products you, your home and your child could need and want - under one roof - from the comfort of your home.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy Diwali & Prosperous, Safe and Healthy New Year.
Gratitude and Love
Aarti, Baby Shloka and Team A Charmed Life.
I always believe that when we support each other, incredible things can happen. A Charmed Life was born with a desire to empower women entrepreneurs, slow and sustainable fashion and design brands, to help them grow and make that impact they wanted to. It started as a blog to share my thoughts and showcase the products I loved. I firmly believe that fashion is for EveryBody and that Sustainable products can be beautiful, well priced and of high quality.
One thing led to another and with time A Charmed Life gained recognition both in India and abroad. More people reached out to me to enquire about Indian brands and artisans; more brands reached out to consult me for their business. I made it my mission to look for talent, unknown brands, women who were doing and creating something different in fashion, decor and beyond. I helped curate pop-ups, trunk shows around the globe, and things were going wonderfully well. When I had a baby last year, I was introduced to a whole new world of design and baby-related products. I discovered brands that were beautiful, functional, made with love and well priced. Brands made by moms for babies and their moms. I added the ones I discovered to my list of brands to support, and then COVID 19 struck us all. It was time to reflect and improvise, to try to help the brands I enjoyed, loved and supported.
A Charmed Life (Shop) was born, a platform to showcase and genuinely enable the deserving few. Each product you see on my platform is curated, studied and filtered by me. I want to bring you brands that are unique, of great quality and something you will grow to love and cherish as much as I do. They have been found by research, flipping through magazines, connecting design schools, non-profits and social enterprises visiting Fashion Shows, pop-ups and bazaars, staying up till 4 am (while the baby sleeps) studying the digital platforms looking for these, vetting these brands run by women entrepreneurs or those with a green heart.
I am excited that as my baby girl turns one, I inch closer to my goal to help build a better tomorrow by sharing stories, products and ideas that will help us all lead A Charmed Life. Through this platform, I will continue to work to empower these people - artisans, mothers, women trying to build their own identity, and with your support, through each purchase, share or referral to a friend we will all continue to grow, beyond Covid19, beyond 2020, for years to come.
So go on, shop mindfully, knowing you support so many people and help keep traditions and ideas alive.
