Cottage Industries were founded as early as the year 1949, to supply exclusive incense sticks and mats to Shri Aurobindo Ashram. Being formed under the extensive guidance of the Mother, the headquarters of the Cottage Industries is located in Pondicherry from where a variety of eco-friendly items are being exported to all the devotees worldwide since 1979. The excess products were handed over to the devotees of the ashram, which eventually lead to a high demand of the incense sticks among the devotees, all across the globe. Over the past few decades, the company has been exporting their products consistently across a dozen of foreign countries.
All of these products are manufactured manually, by the womenfolk of the nearby villages who are picked up and dropped by the special company buses and are allowed to work in the secured environment to add on to the family income.
The Cottage Industries is deemed to work hard in maintaining the natural environment. Even in the era of cutting-edge technology, they prefer to maintain the simplistic style of manufacturing. They strive hard to maximize the use of recyclable materials for the products and incorporate eco-friendly methods in manufacturing them.
The company boasts that each of the incense sticks is made up of 100% natural ingredients. The varieties include sandalwood, cinnamon, patchouli, tropical fruits, floral extracts, cardamom and much more. Each of the herbs, plant seeds, petals, barks, roots oils, and the plant extracts are manually selected before the incenses are being manufactured.
