All our Artists and Crafts Women are deprived people from Tribal /Remote Villages, not only their children are suffering from Malnutrition, Lack of Education, proper Sanitation and a healthy life but to a large extend being deprived of Basic Human rights and Socio recognition.

How Do You Assess Impact of Your Work in the Community? 

It is our socio-cultural duty to undertake the endeavor for its preservation at first place and continuation at the second place and that too without affecting their nativity. That is why we are trying to focus at the concerned fact from anthropological and ethnographic point of view. But at the same time it is also true that only the process of archiving these local art forms will not be of any direct help for the folk artists at individual level. We are promoting large domain of artisans and their artwork, across West Bengal, India to the global audience and connoisseur of Handicrafts and Folk Art. Our online collection of handicrafts has increased with growing time from teracotta , dokra, Batik Printing to Kantha stitch and many forms of artwork from around West Bengal.
