How do I select a product from the seller catalog?

This will give you a unique perspective on product aesthetics. Our suppliers work with a wide variety of artisanal products from materials like wood, leather, iron, brass, glass, ceramic, marble, soapstone and Indian crafts like block printing, screen printing, batik, shibori, Ikat, woodwork, metal inlay, pottery, phulkari, and lot more. You can fine-tune your requirements and select the appropriate wholesale supplier for you.
Can you customise products?
Absolutely! Colours and sizes for most of our products can be customised. We can also add your label and customise designs as per your requirements. In case you already have a design, please send us a picture and we will get back to you with detailed specs, post a discussion with the supplier. Different sellers will have specific MOQs for customised products and we will share the same with you.
How do we know that goods are of the right quality and will be produced on time?
We quality inspect all orders, manage production monitoring for custom orders, facilitate secure payments, offer the best freight costs and ensure safe door delivery. For custom orders, we monitor the production of your order and share updates through the key milestones of the production process. We also facilitate inline and final line inspections for large custom orders - which can be done remotely via video meetings. We conduct a final Quality Inspection once goods are ready and review all documentation. We can also facilitate quality testing as per your requirements from a certified lab at an additional fee. These quality standards need to be provided at the time of placing the order and are recommended for larger orders.
Once products are ready and have been inspected, a trusted logistics partner associated with Qalara ships the products, either by Air or Ocean Freight as decided at the time of placing the order. We keep a constant track of your order till the order is delivered to you at the designated location, ensuring reliable service from order confirmation to delivery.
