We are a team of sisters ( Amrita and Nimisha) who share the passion for all things creative. After having our kids we wanted to be able to work on our own terms while pursuing our passion for art and crafts. That is when Navanka Creations was conceived.
Our shop name "Navanka" is a combination of our kids' names and means “A new beginning" in our mother tongue Hindi.
We grew up in India and lot of our work is inspired by the local art and vibrant colors of India. The best part about our work is that it lets us be part of special moments in the lives of our wonderful customers.That little smile on someone’s face when they receive a unique gift is the best payback of our work and inspires us to do better.
We love to experiment with various mediums, though paper and felt are close to our heart. All our items are created in our smoke free home studio. Though we live in different cities( Amrita in Redmond,WA and Nimisha in Wheeling, IL), our shop keeps us connected on a daily basis.
Other than working for our shop Navanka Creations we also write a blog Craft Ideas for all where we provide tutorials for craft projects for all ages with varying difficulty level.
