Srishtishree


The Urban Haat for hand-crafted products of rural Bengal

Srishtishree is a first-of-its-kind marketing hub under Anandadhara, which has been developed to showcase and promote the hand-crafted products made by members of women SHGs across the state. The market hub was inaugurated by the Hon’ble Chief Minister of West Bengal, Smt. Mamata Bandhopadhyaya on 26th September, 2019

Located in the heart of Kolkata at Dhakuria (adjacent to Dakshinapan shopping complex), Srishtishree is a multi-storied shopping outlet with permanent shops that display the myriad traditional products of each district made by women SHG members. The uniqueness of the marketing hub is that the women belonging to the SHGs who come from the rural and remote areas of the state run the stalls themselves, therefore gaining great exposure to larger markets and professional retail experience. The ultimate objective of this venture is to create a permanent marketing hub for the rural poor to sell their products and receive fair prices for their goods, enabling them to come out of poverty.

The products displayed at the shops provide a glimpse into the diversity of indigenous crafts of each district of West Bengal, and include:
