Etsy Shop: Hindu Supplies

Updated on July 14, 2014

What you need for your Hindu home

My Etsy store: Resources for the American Hindu has all sorts of hand crafted items that are great additions to any Hindu home.

I'm focused on helping Hindus in America find the supplies they need plus products that help non-native Hindus. American sensibilities are reflected in the emphasis on reusable, eco-friendly, and environmentally safe products as well as supplies that might be unique to a cooler climate, like wool scarves for Deity Murtis.

I've been making these crafts for herself for years and then realized that others might benefit from the items too. Not everyone knows how to crochet, knit, sculpt, and draw. But I enjoy doing all these things! I've designed what I think are some really lovely items that are perfect for all Hindu homes.

Sanskrit Hindu Prayer Cross Stitch Pattern

I don't think anyone else has ever made Hindi and Sanskrit letters into a cross stitch pattern before! I created this cross-stitch of my favorite Hindu prayer with Ganesha dancing beside it and it has been hanging in my home for several years (since the 90s!)

Now I've made the pattern available as a PDF download through Etsy. Asato Ma Prayer

I also have a pattern for two different types of Oms. One is a large piece with many stitches and then it also comes with a tiny version that can be used as a border or in a small space. Large and Small Oms

And lastly an Om Namah Shivaya cross stitch pattern. Om Namah Shivaya

Puja How To Cards

A guide for your worship

Maybe you're just learning Hindu worship or maybe you're living on your own for the first time and you're used to your mother doing all the pujas. For anyone who needs support and reference, this laminated deck of cards gives you step by step instructions for how to worship the major Gods and Goddesses of Hinduism.

All the mantras and chants are included. There's lists of all materials you need before you get started.

Puja Cards

Festive Door Hanging

If you like Indian décor or want to create an Indian-style look in your home, this detailed door decoration is a great touch.

If you like to decorate for the holidays, this toran is perfect. It's particularly great for Diwali, with its traditional design of marigold blossoms and mango leaves.

The best part is that it's made of cotton rather than a handwash-only yarn. So it's durable and can be machine washed. You can save this for years.

Festive Door Hanging

Traditional Style Toran with Embroidary

This decorative hanging can go over a door or across a mantle piece or the top of a window and add Indian flair to your home décor.

Traditional Toran

Classic Indian Toran

A combination of crochet leaves and cloth petal flower garlands, you can get the flowers in wine red or in marigold orange.
