02 Jan 2020 -Mumbai Tata Power’s ‘Dhaaga’ now available on various digital platforms
  • Digital push to target 5 lakh plus online customers
  • Targets additional average income increase of INR45,000
  • Enables a dedicated section for women artisan-entrepreneurs on Tata Power website
  • Dedicated page on Instagram

With an aim to make ‘Dhaaga’ products more accessible to a larger audience, Tata Power now has a dedicated profile for its women-artisan empowerment initiative ‘Dhaaga’ on Instagram, world’s leading photo and video-sharing social networking service. The Instagram handle “@Dhaaga_tp” will allow consumers to view Dhaaga’s latest collection which will direct them to the Amazon Saheli website for purchase of the product. Dhaaga will also be promoted via a dedicated section on Tata Power’s website to increase footfalls. The weblink for the same is  https://www.tatapower.com/dhaaga.

This new digital initiative to promote Dhaaga comes after Tata Power’s recent collaboration with Amazon India which involves showcasing Dhaaga products as a part of the e-commerce giant’s ‘Amazon Saheli’ programme. Amazon Saheli is a dedicated storefront on the website to help display and sell products made by women artisan-entrepreneurs listed across different categories on Amazon.

Dhaaga’s presence on Instagram and Tata Power’s website will aim to target over 5 lakhs digital customers. It is also envisaged that the Dhaaga members registered with Amazon Saheli will have an additional average income increase of INR45,000.

Ms Shalini Singh, Chief – Corporate Communications & Sustainability, “The success of an initiative like Dhaaga will to a large extent depend on our ability to reach out to digital customers, particularly millennial & Gen Z customers. The women artisan-entrepreneurs who have remained outside the country’s growing digital marketplace will now be able to access customers who prefer e-commerce platforms like Amazon.”

The tie up between Tata Power and Amazon India has already garnered over 25,000 impressions since it was first announced a week ago (December 24, 2019). Dhaaga is also a registered trademark of Tata Power.
