The rich handicrafts of India often tend to narrate unique stories from the smaller communities of the country. These local artisans have held on to generational knowledge and are part of small craft clusters who are responsible for retaining the country's diverse cultural heritage. An upcoming festival is bringing their unique creations together to help transform urban homes with sustainable creations.
A homegrown organisation Booni Kahani is showcasing the intricate craftsmanship of local artisans spanning everything from traditional textiles to sustainable home decor; shedding light on the ethical approach to their craft by highlighting the stories and techniques behind each piece. The theme for this year is ‘Stitch With Sanskrit’ which invokes our ethnic roots by engaging with Indian classical music, folk performances, and more.
The vibrant event seeks to celebrate the beauty and diversity of local artisans while creating an overall engaging experience. Immerse yourself in the beauty of Indian handicrafts at the Kalakriti Fest this April. You can find more information here.
