Hand Crafts have played a stunning role in shaping India’s culture. Hand crafts are more than just crafts. The artisan makes something by hand, yes, but puts his heart and a little bit of his soul into what he creates.
We then go on to form an immutable connection with these crafted weaves, prints and embroideries— as they silently inform our sensibilities and our choices. They get so intricately woven into the warp and weft of our everyday lives that we perhaps don’t even notice how they form our everyday choices and sacred symbols. Hand crafts are in your Ikat upholstered chair, the Chanderi curtains that blow gently in the wind, in the Rajasthani Kambhari piece hanging from your wall and even in that scalloped aari work dupatta you bring out only for special occasions.
