About us

www.giskaa.com is an exclusive online shop for eco-friendly and natural lifestyle products from all over India. 

GISKAA (pronounced ‘dʒɪskaa’) stands on 3 foundational pillars - Health, Environment and Social. Every product that we promote is reviewed and rated based on a comprehensive rating system that uses specific parameters to measure the impact to health, environment and society. This allows us to arrive at a eco-friendly/natural score which is published on every product page.

GISKAA is 'inspired by nature' and so is our 3-petal logo. Giskaa is deeply rooted in the principle that we hold the key to change in our hands. We shape our environment and our future by our very own hands. Giskaa also values the skilled hands of hundreds of amazing craftsmen who provide a unique taste of India. Hence, our logo, subtly honors the craftsmen by contouring the two petals in the form of two hands. The hands in yellow and red represents the passion and warmth while making the products by hand, also reflecting that the key to eco-friendly and natural lifestyle lies in our hands. The leaf in green represents the end product which is environmentally friendly and natural.

www.giskaa.com is the eCommerce venture of Catena Technologies Private Limited, a company registered and based in Bangalore, India. All orders are fulfilled through our warehouses in Guwahati, Assam and Bangalore, Karnataka.

We in GISKAA persistently strive and promote healthier and sustainable lifestyles to our customers through the promotion of unique products which are environmentally friendly and natural. Our rewards program has been designed with exactly this objective in mind - rewards customers who make eco-friendly purchases. The more natural and eco-friendly a product is, the more reward points you earn! Through this journey, not only will you get the opportunity to learn about the diversity, uniqueness of cultures, and the joy of community living, but maybe get educated and encouraged to live life in a more healthier and eco-friendly way. In the end, we hope to have helped you realize how satisfying it can be to live in close harmony with nature and enjoy what our beautiful planet has given to us, and to realize that we can equally give some of the beauty back.

Most parts of rural India have fortunately not yet succumbed to the exploits of the modern age. The raw materials, the modes of procuring the raw materials and giving life to the final products still remain largely natural and traditional. This not only means that traditional cultures are still proudly treasured, but also means that the products made are strongly in tune with nature, that is to say that they are eco-friendly and natural. When a glamorous silk saree is woven, a trendy water reed handbag is made, a classy bamboo vase is sculpted or a scrumptious chilly pickle is prepared, it is important to keep in mind that these are the products of bare hands, and that no machines or industrial appliances were involved.

Skirting through the length and breadth of the landscape, GISKAA has managed to discover individuals and organizations, who engage in creating beautiful products that really defines sustainability. To just name a few, trendy jewelry pieces created out of recycled materials, classy and yet sustainable Black Pottery kitchen items, handbags made out of natural water reed are online in the GISKAA catalog. These products had always existed but not accessible to the larger population, and hence the lack of awareness. The vision of GISKAA is to play that pivotal role of bridging the gap and building the connection.

We work closely with all our artisans and craftsmen on the ground with a mission to deliver a sustainable means of livelihood for them through GISKAA and generating employment at the source.
