The Origin

The story of Indian handicrafts dates back to 5000 years. In the 15th century weaving was livelihood for many and played an important role in the absence of textiles and machines. Kabir, a weaver by occupation and also a famous Indian poet blends the fine art of weaving with his poetry. "I weave your name on the loom of my mind, to make my garment when you come to me. My loom has ten thousand threads to make my garment when you come to me...... And to comb the twists and knots of my thoughts".

Haat & Handicrafts

Haat is a weekly open-air market held in most villages across India and a delightful synthesis of craft, food and cultural activities. The wares display local taste and demand. A visit to one such Haat is enrichment in more ways than one. Striking bright colors accentuate the spirit of the place. Clay dolls, images of Gods and Goddesses, metal dokra, reed boxes, bags, apparels, plaques, paintings and several knick knacks - all handcrafted make for a visual treat.
