Alaya is a design-led social enterprise based in Uttarakhand, a state located in north west India among the Central Himalayas. We work with craft and skill based producer communities and individual entreprenuers in the region to design, produce and market a range of Furniture, Lighting and Home Accessories.
In a region characterized by small settlements spread over a vast remote mountain landscape, we partner with small-scale producers to build their capacities in design, skills, infrastructure, business management literacy and ensure improved access to markets and fair returns.
Alaya Design Studio is a design led social enterprise, promoted by a core team of professionals from the fields of Design and Development.
Through our design practice, we aim to promote ecological living, environmental awareness and sustainable use of natural and renewable resources.
