Fusion of Imagination, Tradition and Innovation
Indian craft is soaked in culture, textures, palettes and formats. What makes the current pool of Indian contemporary designers stand out is the novelty of thoughts they bring in, effortlessly blending the characteristic traditional elements and fresh air of modernity that takes on culture. The journey of conceptualization to a finished product delivered with a premium label is tedious. Designers from India have their roots steadfast ingrained in the timeless traditions and cultural aura, whilst perpetually working in tandem with trending styles and luxury branding of products.
Creativity takes shape from the surroundings, developed with personal thoughts and overall formative style that needs to be clearly defined and reflect on the outcome, whether a fashionable piece of clothing or a lavish Home décor item. What is most revered and appreciated about Indian weaves and craftsmanship is the distinct earthiness and rich sense of belonging presented in various artforms, such as the incense stick holders that reverberate the architectural and religious sentiments or the handmade soaps and cosmetics formulated from completely natural products to cater to the need of socially giving and beauty-conscious niche audience.
Indian workmanship is being discussed, liked and recognized across the Western countries and the reason is the consistency, vitality and impactful contemporary seriousness in the expression of art, while preserving the old-world handmade ethics and cherishing the history of timeless civilization. The complexity of life form and wide understanding of the regional artisans influences their work, thus making India a melting pot of cultural and artistic luxury products.
