There is nothing that shows passion more than personalised handmade goodies which are handcrafted with love and affection for your special ones.

This is what sisters-in-law Mamata Khemka, 39, and Shruti Bagaria, 26, of Cuttack had in mind when they conceptualised Saaj, a brand that has become synonymous with craftwork made of paper, wood, paper, board and quilling flowers.

Crafted with finesse and shaped into specialized handmade cards, scrapbook albums, photo albums, chocolate boxes, Thai wood boxes, explosion boxes, drawer boxes, wall

clocks, photo frames, tissue boxes, jewellery boxes, wall centre-pieces and lots more, these two partners in creativity show their craftsmanship in each of their products.

They are also catering to orders for bridal needs, baby showers, birthday parties and return favours. The beauty of their work is in the options they provide as far as customising of their products is concerned. ‘’We make some designs as per our framework but many times we also customise products according to the needs of the clients. Like the colours, designs and patterns can be changed as per the requirement of the customer and the occasion,’’ said Mamata and Shruti.

Something that began as an ‘in house’ endeavour has taken shape of an enterprise for both the entrpreneurs who have got tremendous response from all the four exhibitions they have organised so far. Saaj has a Facebook page and their website is under construction.

‘’We are planning a tie-up with retail showrooms to market our product and we would soon register Saaj as a company,’’ says Shruti, an MBA. The price range of the products varies from `250 to `20,000. The duo fetches the raw materials from metros and also at times from abroad.

Unique and exclusive, their products are on display at an exhibition at the Camelia Hall of Hotel Mayfair Lagoon and will continue till July 19.
