Tamil Nadu, in Southern India, has fine examples of the pinnacle of architecture and carving, in its ancient temples at Mahabalipuram and Tanjavur, to name just two. The carving in particular, in stone and wood, are hallmarks of great skill and expertise. This ancient craft and the living tradition that it communicates, flows into the present in a continuum.
The figurines are iconic. These have evolved, as has India, from being Deities worshiped by the Hindus of the land, to including angels, the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, the Buddha and Saints of various faiths in a uniquely plural, Indian context.
There are gorgeous peacocks and carved brackets with birds & Yalis, a mythological creature, part-lion, elephant and tiger, symbols of power. Then, there are the Statuesque pillars! These transform a home instantly into a heritage space.
From Time Immemorial its known that Cave men decorated their caves with paintings and adorned themselves with jewelry made of bones, feathers and bones. The human always looked to Nature's resources not only of survival but also for creating beautiful interiors. Everyone's home is their castle; a personal universe. Our collection presents the rich legacy of Indian crafts and arts to adorn your home.
I bought a wooden wall panel of running horses from an artisan in Tamil Nadu. It was delivered to my door. CraftsBazaar is doing a great service to our artisan community and culture.

I'm touched by the mission this team is on to help promote the unknown craftsperson. This needed to be done. I ordered one Kashmiri woollen Pashmina Stole. Had no issues with delivery.
"An exquisitely carved and delicately painted artefact that embellishes any display window or table." Highly recommended

The site is unique. I've not seen such beautiful Indian products before. I've bought a Tanjore painting and would like to build my collection. Its an impressive range.
Its quite amazing to learn that India has so many handicrafts to offer. Its my country and I am learning about these crafts for the first time. I feel proud. I will be buying my gifts from CraftsBazaar from now.
Always wanted to know where to find the great stuff we saw in magazines and movies. My wife and I pick up artworks from all over the world when we travel but in India we only had the same stuff everyone gets. We are so excited with choice we can now find on CraftsBazaar.
For me CraftBazaar opens doors. I browse, shortlist and then use the EMI to suit myself. The Petit Point linen and cushion covers are just fab. Even the designer ethnic Cholis and so beautiful. For me theres nothing like it.
I enjoy browsing through the pages and finding unique products on CraftsBazaar. I bought a Jharokha in Jaipur White Metal with Meenakari work. Its stunning
Terracotta Art Creations,
Our skill is traditional. It takes time. I paint directly on the products without any tracing. I go from Mela to Mela and thats expensive and my products get damaged. I prefer to be an artisan. CraftsBazaar sells and delivers for me globally. Its easy.
I love making all kinds of jewellery. I've been doing this since I was a child and now I want to make my business big. I like to get orders so I can plan for the raw materials and make unique designs. On CraftsBazaar I can be creative and not worry about selling.
Painting is our way of life. We specialize in Gond Paintings and I use walls to paint my murals in the traditional way. There is now some more demand from city people for our craft thanks to the exposure we get from CraftsBazaar promotion.

We make Kashmiri rugs by hand. The process is laborious and we spend most of our time indoors embroidering and making designs our customers want. Being promoted is necessary as customers can buy from foreign and we don't have to pay agents or worry about courier.For us its a boon.
We all weave baskets here. In all colours and sizes. Its a remote village so we need people to take all our baskets to the city or Mela to sell. Some sell others are returned. Its costly. We have to pay fees. Before CrafsBazaar came it was hard.
The image above captures the glorious freedom of spirit and strong sense of identity that is associated with the nomadic “Banjaras”. The nomadic tribes originate from the desert sands of Rajasthan… Continue Reading
Gone are the days when being traditional was boring. Dressing-up in yards of complex weave and weft from Benaras or the fine needlework of the Kantha from Calcutta, both along the banks of the Ganges .. Continue Reading
