Speaking on the launch of the website, Mrs Alka Talwar, head, sustainability & corporate communications, Tata Chemicals stated, “We are happy to announce the web launch of Okhai handicrafts which will now cater to customers across India. This is an extremely positive development for Okhai and the members of the Self Help Groups, who will now be able to witness their handicrafts on an interactive online portal and its growing demand. Handicrafts are a promising means of generating livelihood for hundreds of women in Okhamandal, Gujarat. 
 
“We have 400 women associated with Okhai who have benefited from this effort. By taking these applique handicrafts online, it will not only help in furthering the cause, but also spreads awareness about the traditional craft of this region, thus helping us to preserve a rich part of our natural cultural heritage. We aim to keep up with such positive developments, touch and brighten the life of thousands of women from Okhamandal as well as the millions who've never been there.”
 
Okhai currently has retail outlets in Mithapur, Ahmedabad, Pune and a new ‘Okhai – Karigar’ store was recently launched by TCSRD in collaboration with Tata Steel Rural Development Society (TSRDS) in Jamshedpur. Okhai products are also available in select stores in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata.
