Sambalpuri Fab, an artisan enterprise was started by Ranjita Meher in early Jan 2021, This initiative took birth during the pandemic. Ranjita was keen on supporting the marketing of sambalpuri craft products through the new age marketing - Online E-commerce.
Ranjita grew up in a family, where Sambalpuri Ikat craft has been practised for generations. She learnt the skills of design, tie & dye, and weaving from her National Awardee brother Sri Krusha Chandra Meher.
Post marriage, Ranjita moved to Bargarh and started Sambalpuri Fab. Through this venture, she is supporting 30 weavers in the Jhilminda cluster by marketing their products through online & social media. She still continues to design the motifs for sarees and dupattas, which is then processed further by the artisans and weavers at the cluster.
