Alpa Smith | Creative Director



We wanted a name which represented us,who we are, and what we do.  Coming from a South Asian background it was important for us to have our roots in our name. 'VISHWA' in Gujarati meaning 'WORLD' and 'ART' is what we do, so that is how we came up with the same 'VishwArtmeaning 'Worldly Art'.  Isn't that quite clever? ...we thought so!


Occasions By VishwArt is about adding that special touch ... The Va Va Voom so to speak to any occasion.  We pride ourselves in creating handmade bespoke personalised home/party decor and gifts for any occasion.  We also make bespoke wedding artefacts and provide a luxury wedding trousseau/gift packing service.

Occasions By VishwArt is a young family owned business which prides itself in bringing quality products to its customers.  We strive to make each gifting experience memorable and each product unique to our customers needs

Our mission is to be the reason behind someones smile.

We believe each customer is a family member who deserves nothing but the best service.


Hi, I'm Alpa and I'm the Owner, Founder and Creative Director of Occasions By VishwArt.  Creating bespoke gifts, wedding artefacts or doing luxury wedding gift packing is my passion.  It gives me great joy knowing that a product I have created has enabled someone to give a memorable gift to their loves ones which will be cherished for years to come.

Although crafting is my passion, my first love (sshhh, don't tell the hubby!) I've not always done this as a business,it was more of a hobby.

In 2017 I started this business as 'VishwArt' with my sister Tina, who is an amazing Paper Quilling Artist (check out her work here  During my brothers wedding we were looking for the WOW factor in the gifting and wedding gift packing and nothing seemed to measure up to what we wanted.  So we thought why not do it ourselves and that is how VishwArt was established... All thanks to my Lil Bro!

ALAS! the dream of a dynamic duo was short lived when I had to take a break from our business to care for my then 2 year old son and my dad.  In the meantime the Paper Quilling really took off and VishwArt was known as a bespoke Art brand ... YAAY!

The passion to create never died and I was always thinking of new products to create.  Fast forward to 2019, we decided to separate the two Arts and Crafts and I branched out, that's when Occasions By VishwArt was born ..... aaahhhh!

I believe that true customer service is our magic formula and my aim is to bring smiles on peoples faces and spread love through my products.
