Have you been to the Chitrakala Parishath in Bangalore? The place hosts several arts and handicrafts exhibitions round the year and a visit to the center has been on the cards for months now. And, I’m glad it’s going to happen this weekend. Thanks to an exhibition by Maati Crafts from June 30 – July 2nd.
Ever since I saw the beautiful applique curtain on Once upon a team time, I’ve been asking my husband every time he visits Mumbai if he would be around that area. Just like any Indian hand crafted piece, you’ll fall in love with the work of their artisans once you see their FB page. The vibrant colors and miniature figures are mesmerizing. My favorite is the miniature pottery collection and the curtain.
About Maati Crafts i their own words: Maati, meaning Earth stands for the essence of nature and earth that’s imbibed into all handmade crafts in India. A model for sustainable business and employment using natural materials and methods, ours is a call to a green way of living. The store is in Mumbai but they hold exhibitions at various cities.
Will keep you posted on what I pick up.
