What is Pabiben?
Pabiben is a website where you’ll get multiple products made of rabari. Currently, they have 500+ SKUs.
On the website, you’ll get different products like Pabi bags, Pabi sling bags, Pabi shopping bags, Pabi tote bags, etc.
Previously businesses used to buy these pabi bags spending a small amount of money and later used to sell them at high prices.
But during the process, the actual makers didn’t get any sort of recognition. That’s when Pabiben Rabari thought of making this a brand and capturing the market.
To help Pabiben Rabari achieve her dream, Nilesh Priyadarshi is helping her. They both established the Pabiben website and now with the help of technology, they are showcasing this art to the whole world.
Nilesh previously worked in handcrafts. Pabiben Rabari lost her father at a young age. She wanted to support her family but didn’t know how to make a brand. She is skilled and talented. She is an artist. She knew how to make art and products, but she didn’t know how to market herself.
Nilesh was the perfect fit for this scenario and helped her make her own brand. Nilesh helped her with marketing and Nupur Kumari helped her in the design sector.
