Founded 35 years ago by the evermore charming Laila Tyabji, Dastkar acts as a bridge between the traditional Indian craftspeople and the urban market.
Not only providing a marketing platform like Nature Bazaar in New Delhi to local artisans, but also offers them support services to help them grow in every manner possible.
The role of Dastkar is to handhold the process of constantly evolving art and making people aware about the immense talent the country’s skilled artisans possess. Laila believes, “Our handicrafts and creative industries are the one thing that makes India unique in the global market place. No other country has such a variety and range of living skills and traditions. We should take pride and invest in this treasure house, and help it develop and grow”.
