Sankh India was established
in 1989 as a manufacturer exporter specializing in the
manufacture of jute bags. With over 15 years in the
business, today it has established itself as the premier
manufacturer and exporter of jute bags from India.
From our very inception, we focused on converting
the image of jute, from a traditional packaging material
to a high-end fashion product, attempting to make an
ethnic statement in the field of contemporary couture.
We experimented with this biodegradable tropical plant,
with lustrous golden fiber and high tensile strength,
to arrive at strong and innovative designs that we can
boast of today. Our products come in a wide range of
Last year, we exported to the United
States, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Sweden, Denmark, and Australia among
other countries. With increased production capacities,
the firm has set itself an export target of 1.00 million
bags this year.
The firm has a simple philosophy that guides its activities: respect for
nature and mankind. This finds expression in everything
the firm does: from the purchase of raw materials to
the packing of the finished products. Each stage is
carefully monitored to ensure that we remain ‘eco-friendly’.
The firm also provides twin sources of income to over
500 local families by allowing women to take basic jobs
home on a contractual basis. We also own and operate
several satellite-manufacturing units.
Facilities & Location
Located on the outskirts
of Calcutta, near airport, the sankh factory is well supported
with having in-house cutting, printing and stitching machines, a veritable 'one-stop-shop' for the manufacture of jute bags.
We have recently also opened our latest offset printing
unit and fabrication unit in New Delhi to give the better
and fast service to our valued customers.
Conscious of its commitment to the environment, every
stage in the production process remains environment
friendly. The work force is skilled and trained to ensure
that each product with the Sankh label meets
the most exacting standards. Our team of dedicated and
highly motivated workers provides the necessary edge
in a competitive market. We employ only skilled artisans
and craftsmen, and have a strong policy against child
labor. In fact, Sankh is known not just for the
quality of product as also for the warmth it extends
to any relationship: be it towards its work force, suppliers
Reason we opened one
more jute bag printing unit to New Delhi
On demand of our several overseas customers, we have
shifted our jute bag unit from Kolkata to New
Delhi. Although Kolkata is known for jute all over
the world, due to maximum jute mills in & around
the city. But at the same time due to its geographical
location the weather here is not favorable for good
quality of printing impression. Very soon we are also going to start our parallel
production unit especially for designer jute bags in New
Delhi and handling of shipment directly from New
Delhi or Mumbai port on demand. We are the only
firm having our set-up in New Delhi for such
types of bags.
Great Graphics: These
are designer printing bags up to 15 color prints mainly
done for museums around the world. Sankh is the only
company that prints up to 15 colors on a jute bag. We
have this new printing technique facility available
at our New Delhi unit.
Wine Bags: We manufacture single bottle,
double bottle & 6 bottle wine bags. These bags are
manufactured for renowned wineries around the world
Draw string Bags: Used for packing coffee beans
& small gift items.
Promotional Bags: These function as packets,
giveaways with products. The perfect “Walking billboard”. Advertising
exposure that will last for years. “Create-a-gab”
- Let your imagination run wild, custom designing your
bag from any combination of these features: Any size,
any shape, with pockets, zippers, Velcro closures, multiple
colors, etc. And these bags are environmentally friendly!
Rucksack: For school children can be customized
in varied prints and colors.
A Wide range of dyed colors in sophisticated tones,
natural hues and bright sunny colors all of which
may be seen in our Color & Weave section.
The fabric for most bags is polythene laminated for
water resistance. However our ribbed, fantasia and
cosmetic bags are not.
Colors vary in every dye lot and color matching on this
natural fabric is approximate.
Although we aim to give the color fastness in all dyed
bags, but we do not guarantee it.
