We are experienced
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
— Jane Goodall
The word “Samakhya” means a “collective”. We are a collective of non-conformists who do not shy away from making an effort for the world we want to live in. We are a team of development practitioners, textile designers, artisans, masons, weavers, marketeers and scientists, who want to solve socio-economic, cultural and climate problems through alternative thinking. Our off-the-centre thinking stems from our rural roots, which enable us to see the inter-connectedness of the world around us.
Samakhya’s work is driven by collaborations between sustainability practitioners and rural desert communities to revive traditional pastoral and artisanal knowledge to innovate solutions for modern-day sustainability problems.
Welcome to Samakhya Sustainable Alternatives
We believe in the power of community-led value chains, green technology, and handholding support to create a better future for all. Our commitment to innovation and product market compatibility ensures that the crafts produced by our artisans and pastoralists stay relevant in today’s market while still honouring the cultural heritage of their ancestors.

This collaboration organizes a nomadic value chain, enabling the significant harnessing of regenerative pastoral fibers for a unique line of sustainable thermal and acoustic solutions tailored for the built industry.
Magra embodies the natural fibers of the vast Thar Desert, deriving exceptional qualities from the unique ecosystem, ensuring resilience in challenging climates and forming the fundamental basis of modern sustainability.
Join us on an expedition where tradition revives, sustainability thrives, and the Thar Desert’s legacy perseveres.
A Revelation in Insulation
Choosing Magra for our insulation needs has been a game-changer. The natural properties of sheep’s wool have not only enhanced the thermal comfort of our space but have also significantly reduced sound transfer. Magra is more than just insulation; it’s a revelation in sustainable living. We’re impressed by the product’s performance and its positive impact on our environment.”
Exceptional Quality, Exceptional Comfort
Magra’s insulation made from 100% pure sheep’s wool is nothing short of exceptional. The quality of the material is evident in its thermal performance, making our premises cozier in winters and cooler in summers. The added benefit of sound insulation has made our living spaces more peaceful. Magra has exceeded our expectations, providing exceptional comfort with an eco-friendly touch.
