A monument of memorabilia, Satayam is born from the heart of Jaipur and has been enriching the trade of Indian craftsmanship since 2005. Started as an archive of temporal fragrances through paintings, textiles and everyday objects, the family owned venture has been working to preserves the undying crafts of India. Satayam’s journey began as a curated design house and has since become a collection of travelling ideas, from the weaves of Bengal to the colours of Rajasthan. The centuries old heritage of fine Indian craftsmanship is a wheel in perpetual motion and Satayam continues to drive its narrative above and beyond. It is a modernist celebration of the past and a ceaseless recital of artisanal brilliance in pursuit of sublime luxury.



When Mr. Subhash Sharma and the now late Shri Rajesh Gaur started their voyage into the world of textiles in 1997, they were guided only by their instincts and a devoted support from each-other. The pair sailed on their own, trying to find a wave that would stick, and eventually settled down with a small shop at the City Palace Gate in Jaipur, Rajasthan. What started as a booth selling wrap skirts to tourists, soon became the centre of attraction for many textile enthusiasts. The brothers’ immense absorption of Indian textiles and their inclination to observe the finer details led them to move through crowds of scholars and curators, collecting a unique apprehension of textiles. They learned, not only from observation, but from the rotating clients and patrons and eventually dove in, to travel across India and seek out the history in attendance. The persistence of their journey created Rajasthan Fabrics and Arts, an unofficial museum of Indian textiles and the guiding light of scholars around the world. In 2005, the establishment grew into Satayam Gartex Pvt. Ltd. an international export company under the management of Mr. Subhash Sharma‘s son Mr. Jatin Sharma, working with the likes of Dosa Flying Fish, Bambford & Sons, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Jack+Jack etc. With an integration of modern design philosophises and traditional Indian silhouettes, it gained immense popularity in markets like Japan. As a design house, Satayam’s ideologies and inspirations were grafted from the antiquated archive of Rajasthan Fabrics and Arts, a driving influence that pushed itself to to preserve the authenticity of heritage Indian textile through reimagination and reinvention.
