WHAT IS CRAFT MAESTROS
Craft Maestros is a platform that curates some of the finest handicrafts in India — brought to you from the homes of master artisans from across the length and breadth of our country. The eponymous ‘maestros’ of Craft Maestros are National Award Winners, Shilp Gurus, Sant Kabirs, and Padma Shri awardees — each one a virtuoso in their own right.
Craft Maestros has grown out of a long-held desire to provide artisans of India with a platform to showcase their art; and has been nurtured with passion, love, and careful curation. Each of our items is handpicked to add a touch of luxury to your home, even as it sustains a legacy of the craft behind it. From Kutch weaves to Kilim rugs, from Thewa to Meenakari, from Papier-mâché to Terracotta pottery — we have a large range of handicraft forms that we nurture, with many more being added steadily to our list.
WHAT DO YOU RECEIVE?
Quite simply, the finest from the absolute Best. A handcrafted piece from the Master Artisan’s atelier. A piece of worth and value. A tangible expression that began as a virtuoso’s vision. While revealing the magic that can be conceived with hands, it will also connect you with the emotions that went into making it. What you will hold, what you will own, is a story - a tale of dedication and dexterity.
WHAT DO WE ACHIEVE?
Contentment! Delivering what we promise gives us a great sense of satisfaction as we believe that aesthetics cannot exist independently of ethics. With every product you buy, it gives us the hope that we will realize our dream - of giving Craft its rightful place.
