About Us

8finity is a social enterprise based out of Kolkata, West Bengal. We make sustainable products for the conscious buyer that are handcrafted with natural and upcycled waste material by skilled women artisans from marginalized communities. Our interaction with this community can be rooted back to May 2020 post the carnage of Cyclone Amphan.

We reached these villages for rehabilitation support and interacted with women of this community. Over time, we began working with 80+ women and tapped their skills in reviving native crafts of weaving and crochet. Conserving the environment is at the center of everything we do. Our story interweaves opportunities for skill development, job creation, and extending the life of what has already been made.

Over time, we have focused our efforts towards designing and curating a range of products that are not just functional but also create a range of commodities that are not only functional but serve a purpose and contribute to the circular economy.
