Tikuli Art has its origins in Bihar, Eastern India. The “tika” or dot on the woman’s forehead is believed to be the inspiration behind this art-form. These would have been the most expensive “tikas” ever! Its a refined expression of art which has evolved from being one requiring painstaking effort, in working with melting glass to form thin sheets, upon which layers of gold foil and gems would be applied under the patronage of Royalty, to its modern-day avatar.
Tikuli Art is now an art form that includes Madhubani motifs and is done on hard-board using deft paintbrush strokes, enamel and bold colors, usually against a dark, black background for great effect. The process renders the board heatproof and waterproof. Fabulous products such as trays, coaster and wall-hangings are increasingly popular.
The ancient science and healing of Ayurveda uses natural herbs and extracts for treatments for every malady known to mankind. Various scientific studies claim Herbal products are among the most effective and easily absorbed. In these times when the atmospheric layer is starting to deplete and pollution poses a significant health risk natural products are skin-friendly and preferred.

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.
Thangkas depict the life and teachings of the Buddha. Buddhist monks embrace austerity, discipline and a life dedicated to learning the teachings of the Buddha. Thangkas are spiritual expressions .. 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
