A chance meeting with an amateur tribal artist sowed the seeds of a venture in the minds of #ShwetaMenon and thus was born, #TrulyTribal, an online store for different kind of tribal art sourced directly from the tribal artists available at an affordable price (www.trulytribal.in).
With a background in the IT industry and consultancy, Shweta always wanted to be an entrepreneur. Creative, with an inclination towards art, Shweta decided to research the rich and fascinating tribal culture of the country. Truly tribal is a result of Shweta’s hard work and diligence and her passion and belief to give back to the society and particularly the most neglected tribal artists. Through Truly Tribal, Shweta reaches out directly to tribal artistes across India and provides them a direct selling platform to reach out to a large online audience. She also helps them with new product ideas and designs to approach Corporates and Interior designers alike. This way Shweta is doing her own bit in terms of spreading awareness of these tribal art forms. So Truly Tribal is about having a business with social intent!
Truly Tribal is an online tribal art gallery where you can find various beautiful and authentic tribal art forms of India which are delivered to your door step. Each of these artwork is unique and hand crafted. Each artefact comes with a story and is labour of love.
From Bell Metal work, Dokra artwork to Gond, Madhubani, Warli, Soura, Pattachitra, Pithora paintings, you can find everything under one roof, just a click away!
Shweta can also customise an artwork as per your requirement. Truly Tribal has wonderful customised corporate and general gifting solutions in tribal work, for any occasion and need. They also provide customised home and office decor options infusing the tribal art in your lifestyle.
Shweta is directly associated with the tribal artist without a mediator and this eases the process of communication. She being a linguist, speaks many Indian languages and their dialects, making it easier for the artists to open up to her.
With passion in her eyes, Shweta says, even if i’m responsible for the upliftment of 3 to 4 tribal families I will feel validated.
Shweta’s dream is to form an ecosystem for the tribal artists where all their needs will be taken care of, where they collaborate with different artists and come up with innovative creations. She would like to organise workshops to spread tribal art, generate funds for their work and be a one stop shop for all their products. Through Truly Tribal she would like to reach out to every Indian and see tribal art adorning every house!
Long way to go but when you heart is in the right place nothing is impossible!
Kudos to you Shweta and may you achieve your dream through your venture Truly Tribal.
