The India Craft House was born from an ardent desire amongst its founders to create a larger canvas than what existed today; for all the beautiful and unparalleled creativity that simple artisans of India have been quietly perfecting for centuries.
People’s art in India does not wait for a canvas or paints made in a factory. Rock faces and caves, a village wall, the floor, a threshold, a palm leaf, a piece of wood, or even the palm of a hand is space enough. For colors, the infinite use provided by nature from flowers, leaves or stones suffice. The instinctive urge to honor Nature and avoid polluting it allows people with traditional wisdom to experiment with any natural resource they find around them. Even when they move to pigments and consequently brighten their images their expressions, stories, motifs and local identities remain true to their known cultural understanding.
We hope to be able to feature Indian art and craft in its most unique and contemporary form and bring it closer to people across the world. The site www.theindiacrafthouse.com is inhabited with a wide selection of products from every corner of the country, direct from the artisan or from NGO’s working closely with artisan groups. The objective is to create a fair price platform for the artisans who have very Iimited access to any market, leave alone global markets. The effort is to provide an undeniably unique selection of traditional art and craft translated into attractive, contemporary products, while ensuring a fair price for every single artisan whose creations have been featured on this portal.
The site offers a wide selection of unique, daily use articles for homes and offices as well as some beautiful options for women’s articles like stoles, bags and jewelry handpicked from various corners of the country.
