Welcome To Usha Exim

Usha Exim is a certified Ethical Fair Trade multi-product Export Organisation which was launched to bring quality products and novel handicrafts to the world market with Ethical & Fair Trade practices.

About Us

Our Environment

Usha’s registered office and factory is spread across 15,000 square feet in the ideal commercial and industrial hub and central location of prestigious real-estate of Okhla Industrial Estate, Phase-III in New Delhi. The factory is equipped with most modern Japanese and indigenous state-of-the-art plants & equipments.


How It All Started?

Usha made its humble beginning with its quality production of beautifully handcrafted aesthetic Soapstone crafts in the Clean & Green Model Workshop situated at Agra. The essence of quality and fairness soon grew into a successful export business. Gradually, other craftlines were added due to buyer demand, resulting in transformation of Usha into a Center of Indian Traditional & Novel Handicrafts.



Usha has invested heavily in human resource development by installing a competent and professional team of Concept Designers, Merchandise Managers, Logistic Executives, Managers and a team of master craftsmen – all with distinct specialisations in their respective fields. In the past, our participation at International Trade Fairs like Ambiente, Tendence, Collectione, and Asian Living at Frankfurt, Germany, New York Gift Fair, Feirra Milano at Italy, Hong Kong Gift Show as well as Indian Handicrafts & Gifts Fairs, New Delhi, gave us new impetus and vision to offer world class services and interact with buyer’s requirements intelligently.

A Word from our

Founder & Visionary

“Humanity can not be subjected to artificial restrictions. We author our own destiny. Extreme poverty is a curse while absolute luxury a sin, a truth which can not be disputed. Let’s responsibly write a new destiny of the world, maintaining the high standards of ethics, action and peace to attain our ultimate global goal – bliss and only bliss.”

Veena - Artisan Success Story

Name – Veena
Marital Status – Married
Veena is a 35 years old leather artisan from Uttrakhand. She has six sisters and a brother. Father, now retired, was in a private job. She studied till IX standard. She wanted to pursue her study but being from a poor family and having six sisters, she was forced to get married approx. at the age 16 or 17. She has two children, one boy in class XI and Girl in IV standard. She was a house maker for quite some time. Three years before her husband got bed ridden because of some disease, she was left with no option but to work, to run her family and to continue the education of her children.

She had no working experience and was not educated enough. She felt miserable and thought maybe she could have studied. Now she does not want her children to have the same fate so she wants both of them to be well educated and she does not want her daughter to get married till she stands on her feet.

She took few jobs here and there but she faced payment problems or sometimes atmosphere was not good. Above all she had no experience. Somehow she joined the group who is working with Usha. Here she was trained to make different parts of the bag. Slowly and steadily she learnt different processes of bag making. Now she is great at almost everything.

She is happy now. She gets her payment on time. She even gets advance payment if she needs it. Her voice is heard and we are there to understand her vows.

Upon asking what do you think about your future goal. She says,”My future is my children and my goal is now that my children should be well educated and both of them should get good jobs.”
