nethaat’s Story

Nethaat is an Indian e-commerce website that provides artisans, artists, designers and homemakers a platform to sell their handicrafts,designer and eco friendly products.

This website was inspired by Rakesh Sonava’s family experience who went through trials and tribulations to sell their goods. His uncle used to go from place to place selling hand-printed cushion covers and bed linen. He could sell what he carried with him but nothing more. Rakesh wanted to set up a permanent platform for people like him to sell his goods. Rakesh sonava is a supply chain professional and an alumni of indian institute of materials management (IIMM)/Schulich school of Business,York university Toronto with PG and specialization in Supply chain management and Roshan agarwal ,an IT/IPR professional. Both started Nethaat.

Nethaat also offers a place called “Haating” where buyers can negotiate the price of an item with its seller, much like bargaining which is prevalent in Indian markets. And if you feel the need to protect your design, it has a locker feature which will safely keep your designs and handmade creations and you can create passwords to show the items to the people of your choice. Also, Nethaat helps artists in creating and managing their own stores and offers help in packaging and customer service, through a network of representatives across the country.
