We are honoured to partner with the Madhya Pradesh government and we welcome the talented artisans of MP on to our platform. These gorgeous Chanderi and Maheshwari fabrics and saris have been around for years. The LimeRoad mobile application will now take these unique assets of India to millions of customers, and make these products from traditional to trending,” said Suchi Mukherjee, founder and LimeRoad CEO.
