Ninety stalls, 40 types of crafts and artisans from 20 different states. Dastkar’s Nature Bazar is in the city to craft happiness in our lives. From carved furniture to embroidered and block-printed textiles, the exhibition has an amalgamation of art forms across the country. Started in 1981, Dastkar works with more than 600 craft groups and plays a catalytic tool in their employment opportunities.
“The theme is sustainable products. The response has been good so far. We’re expecting more people and our loyal patrons have been dropping in and picking their favourite products. People from all age groups will have something to buy at affordable prices. We also have a line up of interesting workshops to educate people about the traditional techniques and dance performances,” said Chhavi Saklani, a member of project Dastkar.
As we take a stroll around the shops, we find interesting offers like herbal treated yoga mats from Hyderabad.
