Indian handicrafts are a rich and culturally important industry that needs no introduction. India, as a country and as a people, possesses a long and unique history of art, with thousands of indigenous crafts surviving generation after generation. However, this long history of handicraft is slowly fading away, not because of a lack of interest on the part of people but because of an increasing supply of duplicates and low-quality goods in the market. At Craft Maestros, you can buy handmade products online which come directly from nationally recognized artisans. We make sure that you receive genuine handmade products while simultaneously doing our bit to aid the survival of rich Indian handicrafts.
Who are Our Maestros?
There are over 7 million registered craftsmen in India and over 100 crafts are preserved in their hands. Yet, several crafts in India are on the verge of dying. To preserve these crafts, the National awards for artisans was introduced in 1965. These National Awards are bestowed on craftsmen with exceptional performance in Indian handicrafts. Since 1965, only 1,217 craftsmen have been graced with the National Award. To celebrate the resurgence of Indian handicrafts, the Shilp Guru awards were instituted in 2002. The Shilp Guru Award is presented to craftsmen with exemplary contributions to the revival of the craft. Since 2002, only 134 craftsmen have been titled as Shilp Gurus. Craftsmen with legendary performance have been awarded the Padma Shri. Buy handmade products online from us and welcome home handcrafted products from these deft and applauded craftsmen. We bring to you these ancient crafts and lauded craftsmen, exclusively at Craft Maestros, your one-stop handicraft shop.
