I have been travelling in India over the past thirty years and I am always looking for rare and interesting pieces of folk art, sourced from visiting villages, handicraft cooperatives and bazaars across India, in the search for unusual and distinctive pieces of work from the talented craftspeople of India.
The selection of items shown from Kashmir - bed and cushion covers - are readily available and always in stock.
The Zari (wall hangings) Chaklas, purses and water carriers are subject to availability. These being older and rarer items, their availability is limited.
Please contact me via my site if you wish to know more information.
