MindaHome was started after the Founder -- Melinda -- fell in love with India during a mission trip, and it changed her perception of the world around her. The company was founded as a way to share the beauty, the history, the artisanal craftsmanship and an appreciation for worldly culture. Melinda's hope is to provide a uniquely beautiful approach to home decor that has a meaningful purpose -- to tell a story, to inspire, to evoke happiness, to benefit others and to give back. MindaHome promotes fair trade practices, cultivates collaborative relationships, and benefits communities around the world; it directly donate proceeds to mission-driven organizations, and the Melinda volunteers in her local city of Philadelphia and while on her travels across the world. All MindaHome products are one of a kind and are designed and handcrafted in limited quantities through the collaboration with artisans in remote parts of the world to create a product that honors traditional craftsmanship, for the modern home.
