Welcome to OpenHand!

“At OpenHand we believe a garment made well sits great on the body but if made ethically it is a perfect fit for both body and soul.”

The same with every cup of coffee we serve: it tastes better if made by content staff in a friendly environment.
Our company has been manufacturing, exporting and retailing in India since 1999 and our product range includes men’s and ladies garments, scarves, household linens and our new range of bags.
You can visit one of our cafes & coffee shops in Delhi, Leh-Ladakh or Varanasi to sample our excellent coffee, baked goods & light meals.

OpenHand is a profit oriented concern as opposed to a charitable work, it generates its own income, pay taxes and aim to be compliant with all Government requirements.

Our core value is to help the poor by creating forms of employment in and outside of the company, to provide training as per the skill level of each participant and to encourage transformation through the values and discipline of a business. We do not discriminate against religion, gender, cast, class, disability or other forms of bias but understand that life in any form is sacred.
We aim to supply unique product, service and manufacturing solutions to the market place. From the design and decoration of a double shot espresso based cappuccino to the technical achievements found by solving production challenges in manufacturing we strive to make it well and to make it fast. Our products must sell themselves and the story behind each product gives hope to those who have none and inspiration to other potential game changers.

WHAT WE DO
Our Manufacturing

OpenHand produces custom made garments for both ladies,  gents & kids in our 3000 sqft factory in New Delhi. We now also produce custom made & branded leather, canvas & waxed canvas bags. Our preference is to work in natural fabrics such as linen, cotton, poplin or silk.

Our Cafes

We invite you to visit one of our cafes in North India, come early for breakfast or stop by for a selection of home grown coffee bean, espresso based coffees. Our staff are friendly & understand the needs of a weary traveler.

Ethical Partners

OpenHand work with small chartitable groups, giving design & production input. Products from these groups can be purchased at all OH stores.

Social & Environmental Commitment

Our slogan is ‘People Profit’ and we work daily towards higher ethical standards. Our second goal is to become equally environmentally friendly. We are committed to work towards a zero waste goal. Although we have far to go on this road we are on our way with this goal ahead of us.
