Our Story

Bharati Bajaj, Founder

It all started on a trip back home, Assam during the lockdown when I was inspired to collaborate and create with local artisans as a way to support their skills and livelihood. Staple East is a way to share the depth and richness of this place and its people with you. But it doesn't stop there.

Thoughtful consumption is the guiding light as we create and curate products. We are mindful not only of the beauty of the craft but also the functionality of our products and the sustainability of the materials. We use natural materials for our products such as organic cotton, rattan, bamboo, straw and wood. The quality and craftsmanship of our products are made to last a lifetime.

You can feel good about your purchase from Staple East. From start to finish we have been mindful of the process. With every product you purchase from us, you are helping support local artisans to thrive in their craft and sustain their families while also choosing to consume in an Eco-friendly fashion.

It's a Full Circle Movement


Our goods are the product of decades of tradition handed down through generations. The outcome is craft and intentionality. 


All our products are slow made by hand. No machines are involved in the replication of our goods. What you get is one-of-a-kind product made just for you with the story of someone attention and care crafted into every detail.


From start to finish, we care about the details of our products and the impact of our business. Not only do we want opening your package to be a beautiful experience but one that minimizes waste. 


At Staple East we take pride in working with sustainable materials, be it pruned coffee branches, climbing palm or organic cotton. The value in our goods is not only their handmade nature but the ecologically friendly materials used. 


We have worked hard to bridge the gap between the artisans in Assam and your home. There is separate shipping for now. 


Our goal at Staple East is to always leave a place better than we found it. Therefore we partner with our local community to help care for the needs of the people of Assam. This month we partnered with the local family to provide for health care of the head of family directly.
