“Platform provided by LimeRoad to our artisans will help spreading the old customs and traditions of rural Madhya Pradesh across the world,” tweeted Shivraj Singh Chouhan, chief minister of Madhya Pradesh.

“We are proud to announce that the Mrignayani products are live on LimeRoad. We have always wanted Limeroad to be the most extensive platform for the discovery of delightful products made by small-scale entrepreneurs across India. 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.
