Craft tour by Matsya

You all have heard of Matsya, right? The brainchild of Neha Gandhi, Matsya is a labor of love, a a bridge between grassroots artisans and urban customers. 


Matsya curates a unique range of home furnishings, studio pottery and accessories, retailing these products online, at exhibitions and on a one-on-one basis, to individuals as well as corporate customers.

Their goal is to preserve, revive and expand the rich tradition of rural handicrafts by working closely with artisans, helping them develop quality products that appeal to contemporary tastes.
I can vouch for the gorgeousness of the products, because I have so many of them in my house. This post however, is to tell you about their craft tour Neha embarks on twice a year. 
Matsya has just released their craft tour book, a colorful insight into the life of the artisans and village people along with quirky narrative and lovely visuals.


If you want to lay your hands on it, email Neha at neha@matsyacrafts.com. I plan on not only getting the book, but also joining her on her next craft tour sometime in Oct/Nov. What an amazing experience that will be!


And why I am posting in orange? Cos blogger is acting silly and not allowing me to change the font color to black!!!!!

Your background is black, so how come you want your font to be black? Did you mean white?!
