Garima Kothari

I am Garima Kothari, Paper Crafter. I have specialized in Handmade personalized Gifts. Art and Craft is my hobby since childhood and has turned into a profession for 5 years.

1.Tell us about your background and journey. 

I was into art and craft since childhood, making creative things, best out of waste was my hobby. I used to get inspired by everything around me and try to put it in my art. 

2. How did you come up with this idea and go about executing it? 

I had put exhibitions when I was in school, I got a good response. Later, I started an Instagram page as my hobby when I was 15yrs, where people appreciated my work and insisted to customise it for them. That's when I started to take commissioned orders.

3. What is Sanskriti Celebrations all about and how has the artwork or craftwork changed over time? 

As the name was suggested by my mom, Sanskriti Celebrations has a connection with our Indian Culture (Sanskriti). Initially, when I started 4 yrs back, customized gifts were not known by all and very few liked handmade gifts. And in these 4 yrs, the views of our society has changed and most of them love personalized gifts and respect our creativity. 

We provide customized gifting solutions for all occasions. We have a wide range of gifts like explosion boxes, chocolate bouquets, cards, hampers, frames, albums, etc. We customize gifts as per the client's request. 

4. What has been your biggest challenge that you faced and how did you overcome that? 

At the initial stage, when I started on Instagram, I didn't have an order for straight 4 months, but I still continued to do my task and when I got my 1st order, I was overwhelmed. 

At first, people around used to mock about this and discourage me, they said it was just papers and hobby that couldn't be a profession.

But I still continued what I wanted to do. My mom has always been my backbone, Since childhood, she has supported me and where I am today is because of her. She has always encouraged me. 

5. How is your craftwork different from other artisans? 

I work for making memorable memories for everyone! 

I design and curate as per the client's budget, occasion, and taste. I make each and every project with fine details and all my heart. I strive for perfection and don't compromise on quality. Each and every order goes a piece of my heart! I work for those beautiful smiles for my clients on special occasions. 

6. You have done more than 1500 orders already, how did you manage to grow so fast? 

My clients have been very supportive, they reviewed my work, Instagram gave me a platform where I can connect to many people and they can connect with me for their personalizations. 

7. How do you define success for yourself & your business? 

As we say, Rome wasn't built in a day... To achieve success one should focus on the process. It's the most beautiful part of the journey. One will achieve Success if they are committed to their goals!
