Our Story

In bustling cities of Vancouver and Chandigarh, where the rhythms of modern life drown out the whispers of tradition, two childhood friends embarked on a journey to reclaim the soulful melodies of their heritage. Born from a shared passion for preserving the intangible cultural heritage of indigenous populations, Raga Weaves emerged as a beacon of hope in a world where tradition often fades into obscurity.

Jasmine, with roots deeply intertwined with the Gurjar tribe, felt a calling from his ancestors to safeguard the legacy of their lost art. Through his pedagogy in architecture and design, he embarked on a quest to unearth the hidden treasures of their culture.

Meanwhile, while visiting Delhi Anvit found himself caught in a moment of reckoning amidst the bustling chaos of Delhi Haat. Surrounded by the vibrant hues of handcrafted wares, he was drawn to a pashmina shawl. But as he eagerly negotiated its purchase on behalf of his colleagues from New York and Sao Paulo, he was met with a solemn refusal from the artisan.

In that poignant moment, the artisan's words pierced through the cacophony of commerce, resonating deeply within Anvit's soul. He realized that behind each exquisite creation lay a story of sacrifice, of artisans who journeyed far from their homes, seeking to share their craft with the world. Yet, in the pursuit of profit, their livelihoods were often overlooked, their stories drowned out by the clamor of commerce.

It was this revelation that ignited a spark within Anvit, propelling him to action. With Jasmine by his side, he set out to bridge the chasm between artisans and business buyers worldwide.

Together, they founded Raga, a platform dedicated to empowering artisans, preserving their cultural heritage, and fostering meaningful connections between creators and consumers.

Their journey have led them to the vibrant streets of India, where the echoes of tradition whispered tales of bygone eras.
