The establishment that had to compete with several other businesses in the vicinity soon established itself capturing markets from the old and new businesses capitalizing on the advent of a new clientele both from the within and outside the island to the area specially with the establishment of the two plazas: Unity plaza and Majestic city.

The establishment drawing from the rich experience of Anusha handicrafts sources its products directly from craftsmen a pool of which is constantly sought to maintain its unique and varied portfolio. In turn the business infuses much needed revenue establishing continuous stream of economic sustenance to the crafts people who are at the heart of its products.

Over the years the business, under the direction of Samitha Hettiarachchi Perera has reached out to several overseas markets such as Bangladesh, Pakistan and India too. Locally it has begun to distribute and make available its products through modern trade in certain and specific geographies.
