In the heart of a doctor’s pursuit of passion, Mai Potli was born—a magical realm where art, love, and empowerment intertwined. Aditi Dakua, a doctor with a brush in hand and a heart for creativity, embarked on a journey that would not only redefine her own path but would extend a helping hand to those in need.
Founded by Dr. Aditi Dakua, a passionate artist and a dedicated doctor (MBBS All-India 516th rank), Mai Potli is more than just a website—it’s a celebration of art, culture, and the spirit of women.


Aditi’s vision is nothing short of inspiring. She envisions a world where tribal women earn from the comfort of their homes, a world where financial independence is not just a dream but a reality. Through Mai Potli, she aims to create awareness among these talented artisans, empowering them to turn their homes into both sanctuaries and sources of income.


The mission is clear—empower women to make money without stepping out of their homes. Aditi seeks to educate, to form communities of empowered women who redefine the narrative of earning. In a post-COVID world, the importance of earning from home has never been more apparent, and Mai Potli stands as a beacon of hope for those seeking financial stability.


The impact is profound and far-reaching. Aditi envisions equality in every tribal and rural household, fostering stability and prosperity. Mai Potli is not just a marketplace; it’s a movement, a testament to the transformative power of art, compassion, and the indomitable spirit of a mother on a mission. Welcome to Mai Potli, where every purchase is a step towards a brighter, more empowered future.


Aditi found solace in the strokes of a paintbrush during her hectic medical studies. However, life took a turn after marriage and motherhood, as the changing winds of her husband’s work and the joys of raising a daughter nudged her away from the traditional medical practice. Undeterred, she sought a way to balance her newfound responsibilities while pursuing her passion.

Driven by the understanding of the importance of financial independence for women, she sought to instill these values in her daughter, aspiring to create a legacy of pride. 

Aditi ventured into the interiors of Andhra Pradesh, where she came across the tribal artisans crafting exquisite handcrafted decor items. Their art spoke volumes, but the world remained deaf to their masterpieces. She saw the struggle of these talented artisans and heard the silent cries of their fading art. Determined to be the bridge between their craft and the world, Mai Potli came to life.

These talented artists, who once struggled to market their masterpieces, now find a lifeline in Mai Potli. By directly purchasing their handcrafted decor items, Aditi ensures not only the preservation of their rare art but also provides a sustainable source of income for many tribal families.

The platform has become a catalyst for empowerment, offering these artisans a bridge to a wider audience and fair compensation for their exceptional skills. The ripple effect is felt in the heart of tribal communities, fostering economic stability, pride, and a renewed hope for the continuation of their rich cultural heritage. 

The name Mai Potli itself echoes with the warmth of a mother’s embrace and the magic of a bag that holds treasures within. “Mai” is what Aditi’s daughter lovingly calls her—meaning mother—and “Potli” signifies the bag from which diverse and beautiful products emerge. Mai Potli, therefore, is not just a website; it’s a mother’s haven, a place where dreams take shape and imaginations come to life.
