All the products present on Purbashree website have been hand-woven and hand-crafted by weavers and artisans in villages mostly at their homes. 

Unevenness in weaves, prints, minor slubs in fabric and slight variation in color are expected outcome of an authentic craft process. These variations are typical characteristics of any hand-crafted product and are not to be considered as damage or defective.

Purbashree products mostly come from small master weavers, co-operatives and artisan entrepreneurs. As small businesses, while they strive hard to make and sell authentic handmade products to their customers, it is difficult for them to accept returns from customers as many times the products are not returned in original condition. For example a silk saree which is returned back in crumpled condition to the weaver cannot be resold again and is a huge loss for them.
