Services & Manufacturing

Given Auroville’s vision of manifesting spirit in matter, our handicrafts and small-scale industries aim at quality, beauty and creativity; they are committed to manufacturing products in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

Connected with the world’s economic system, Auroville small scale industries are influenced to a certain extent by global market forces. But they are quite unique in that ownership because profit is not the primary goal. They operate as a service to the growing township.
