The word Aindriyaa in Sanskrit means, "To Nurture the senses".
This is what we do at Aindriyaa - At Aindriyaa, we focus on bringing you an unique range of high quality art and school supplies.
Many of our products are made in Europe and are manufactured from sustainably sourced wood. The quality and the sustainability of our products speak for themselves.
It is not just the mere manufacturing process that matters but the passion and the intent of the person who makes the product too makes an impact on its creation. This strengthens our belief in sustainability rather than a consumeristic approach. This enables us to select our products to be as close to nature as possible, while still retaining a consciousness around quality, usability and functionality.
Our products range is inspired by Steiner/Waldorf Schools & Kindergartens, Montessori Schools, Alternative & International Schools that work with age appropriate learning through imaginative and creative play in a nurturing environment.
