Being Their Voice
We understand the hurdles faced by our artisans in sustaining their craft, therefore we try to do whatever is there in our capacity to promote them, give them a platform and enable them to conserve their stories and their art. We honour them, encourage them, learn from them and join hands with them to preserve a dying craft.
