Founded in Udaipur, in 1998, Sanskriti Expressions was started in a small apartment with a team of localartisans of Rajasthan. After years of translating ideas and skills into artful pieces, the workplace shifted to a bigwarehouse and soon became a destination forsmall businesses desiring a more aesthetic line of interior objects, gift ideas,home accessories, and furniture for reselling at their store and exhibitions.
In an inspirational span of 15 years, the same artisansmastered the art of juxtaposing tradition and ingenuity to create designs for contemporaryliving. It was the autumn of 2013, whenwe decided to bridge the gap between the artist and the admirer by taking ourcraft to the direct audience and so, we created Indune. From antique-finished boxesto distressed photo frames, retro-styled furniture to unusual curios and objetd'art – our idea is to bring rooms to life and compose a selection that reflectsthe hands of the maker.

His venture, Sanskriti Expressions started supplying to start-ups,exhibitors, and interior designers. However, after an inspirational decade, hestill had a dream – waiting to berealised.
Nipun began spending his time thinking of creating a platform of home decor products thatexude Rajasthan’s exceptional vibes and at the same time suits a discerningaudience. “At that time, I got smitten by the idea of creations that canbeautifully affect both the consumer and the maker while directly bringing eleganceto modern spaces.
