Our journey embarked with a humble beginning, when 24 years ago our father stumbled upon the world of wood craftsmanship and fell in love with it ever since. A few miles away from the cultural hustle-bustle of Jaipur, amidst the rich landscape of Sirsi village, Hastkala was started with a small group of 15 people, comprising both skilled carpenters and unskilled workers. Today with a diverse team of 250, spread across 50,000 sq ft in Sirsi from right where it all started, we design and produce timeless hardwood furniture for today’s living spaces which is sold across 50+ countries worldwide.
While detailed craftsmanship and quality making lie central to our values, and for us, the essence of craft has always lengthened beyond the technique and reaches towards understanding the larger impact an object generates, by where it is made, how and by whom.
Each piece of wood craft from Hastkala is part of a sustainable ecosystem, meticulously handmade through a sequence of thoughtful design interpretations utilising materials sourced with utmost care and responsibility. And hence, our brand ethos revolves around our people, process, place and product.
