What Makes 'Em Shine: Kanti Goods is a social enterprise that sells socially and environmentally responsible handmade jewelry, handbags, scarves, plush animals, and accessories from around the world. Kanti Goods work with a global network of artists who are doing their part to improve the social fabric of their communities and encourages the use of local materials and fair production methods. Our goal at Kanti is to support women and small-scale artists around the world by providing them with jobs so that their families and communities can thrive. Kanti means ‘beautiful’ in the ancient language of Sanskrit, and each of our beautiful goods are infused with a beautiful story. “Be Beautiful. Be Kanti.”
The idea of Kanti Goods blossomed when a mother and daughter’s wanderlust led them to Southern India. While visiting these new places, we started collecting beautiful pieces infused with beautiful stories. We were so inspired by our findings that we decided to bring back some of these treasures and share them with you. Our name Kanti is derived from Sanskrit, the ancient language of South Asia, which started many of the world’s modern languages. Kanti, the Sanskrit word for beauty, is thus a root for worldly beauty. Here at Kanti, our aim is to offer a variety of beautiful and genuine fine worldly goods so that everyone can enjoy some of the beauty available in our world.
