Kantha-Embroidered Shopper Bags from Ranthambore with Hand-Printed Wildlife
Pure cotton with natural dyes on hand-block print fabric make these shopper totes are roomy enough to be ideal for todays busy lifestyle.
This wonderful collection of blocks was inherited by the artisan from his forefathers, and designed and developed a special range of products, including these shopper bags, based on drawings by local children of the animals. Our artisans aspire to keep this traditional art from becoming extinct.
With the intent to revive the craft, Babulal was invited to set up a printing unit at the Kendra. Together, with his wonderful collection of blocks that he had inherited from his forefathers, we designed and developed a special range based on drawings by local children of the animals, trees, and mandanas (wall and floor paintings).
These blocks have become our hallmark and identity today. With a strong and determined printing team, we aspire to keep this traditional art from becoming extinct.
