OUR BUSINESS MODEL
TYI prides itself in beautiful products that are fairly sourced, while simultaneously donating a portion of every sale to charities that benefit women, children and/or their education. Each piece purchased by our customer is changing the lives of those who handcraft our beautiful products as well as those who are the recipients of our charitable contributions.
Although our website looks like a retail website we are a social enterprise where we maximize improvements via skills development/artisan market rather than maximizing profits.

Thank You India (TYI) collections exemplify the classic, timeless style and the spirit of the founder, Tazim, a professional interior designer. Tazim’s trained eye for design, ensures the collections are diverse and sophisticated with a nod to both the North American and Indian style
Through collaboration with manufacturers and artisans, and regular visits to their villages and cities in India, TYI ensures the selections are exclusive and fashion-forward while reflecting the rich and varied cultural heritage of India. Equally important to TYI is the sustainable, long term impact on the communities in India, both ecologically and culturally.
We measure our success by working with credible partners who share in our values. Our products are ethically sourced and we purchase at fair value. We empower our artisans to make their work marketable in North America and around the world thereby increasing the sustainability of their craft.
When you purchase TYI merchandise you become part of the social chain of giving back.
