Background Story

Back in 2014, I started my first corporate job and was miserable. I was mildly depressed, developed anxiety, and my health was quickly deteriorating due to stress. The feeling of mediocrity crossed my mind constantly - deep down I know working for someone wasn't for me. Adopting a mindset influenced by the peace mantra, "Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu", I began to let go of everything that weighed me down. I soon realized my happiness comes from doing what I love, thus Sukhino Designs was born. 

About Sukhino Designs

Based in Nashville, Sukhino Designs creates quality handmade wood gifts and decorative accessories with a focus on unique designs and laser cutting technology. Sukhino seeks to positively impact individuals, businesses, and organizations with products that are motivational, encouraging and empowering, as well as eye-catching and one-of-a-kind.

Sukhino Designs started with one goal in mind: to provide a sense of freedom and happiness. The word sukhino is derived from the hindi language and means centered in happiness and joy and free from suffering. Sukhino Designs is providing a sense of freedom and happiness for me (the owner) and strives to provide that same type of freedom for other individuals, businesses, organizations, and so on. 

Why handcrafted goods? I love to use my hands. There is something about making a product by hand that makes it that much more special. I put a ton of care, time, and thought into everything I produce and want everyone to enjoy and love them. 

Why wood? Every piece of wood is natural and unique, just like all of us. None of us is exactly alike and the same applies to wood. You will never find one piece of wood that looks like the other, which makes each and every product that is produced distinct. Wood also creates this elegant, simplistic, and timeless look that will make you delighted to walk around with our products.
