Creative and Managing Director/Owner

India and many other Asian countries are renowned for their diverse cultures, traditions, and vibrant array of forms and colors.

Inspired by years of exploration throughout India and Asia, Anja Vanal established the label "maasa" in 2004.

Since 2008, maasa has operated its own boutique shop in Wädenswil (Zurich).

At maasa, we specialize in trading artisanal goods sourced from India.

Our commitment to fair trade and humane working conditions spans all levels of production and trading.

In 2013, Anja Vanal, in collaboration with her Indian business partner Sunil Chindalia, founded Maasa Production Pvt. Ltd. in New Delhi.

This initiative ensures a sustainably high quality of all maasa products, with a particular focus on block print textiles, wooden stamps, and soft goods.

As a socially responsible employer, Maasa Production creates much-needed employment opportunities in India, working closely with local Indian families.

Our main material is certified organic cotton, and we take pride in designing our wooden stamps and block prints in-house.

We invite you to explore our shop during our operating hours from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm,

Insights about the craft

SMT Krishna Charitable Trust ORG.

In our nonprofit organization, children from extremely needy families receive support, assistance, and additional lessons.

Since its founding several years ago, about 100 children now attend our program on various weekdays.

The main funding comes from private donations.

The idea for founding this organization comes from Mr. Sunil, who is familiar with the challenges of state schools in India.

He knows that many families cannot afford the supposedly free state education.

State schools require uniforms. However, children only receive one free uniform and school books for learning per year.

Parents must pay for writing utensils, rulers, erasers, and empty notebooks for homework, which many cannot afford.

Many of the parents themselves have not received formal education and are grateful for the support.

Through private donations, individuals who are present on-site and provide lessons to the children are symbolically paid.

Additionally, all costs for the necessary school materials are covered, which are distributed individually to the children.

Some need an additional uniform, while others need new writing utensils.


We welcome any kind of support. I am happy to provide further information personally.
