Owing to her steady efforts, the studio has gradually evolved into India’s major sustainable design brand that offers a variety of contemporary lighting products. Oorjaa lights are made from sustainable materials like handmade paper, cork and faux cement, following the principles of green design at their own studio in a green building in Bengaluru.
Oorjaa mainly offers handmade paper lamps that feature a unique crumpled design and offer elegant, warm illumination. The studio has explored with different materials like kora grass, jute, sisal, hemp, etc. to make paper but finally settled with fibers extracted from adult banana tree trunks and bark of mulberry trees from North-east India. These are naturally available materials that can be grown over again and again.
