A range of different craft styles, a plethora of talented artisans, and lush greenery all around – Shantiniketan easily inspired us. From colourful seeds which tribal women fashion into jewelry, to fine embroidery on luxurious silks.
Here craftsmen could bring out the best in just about any material. We couldn’t resist, we had to explore. With an aim to see a manifestation of our design aesthetic in these age-old crafts, the Abakash label was born in 2004. Hand-crafted from materials that are locally available, we try to tweak existing processes and bring about design innovation – in an endeavour to delight with each product.
Operating from a spacious yet cosy house in Purbapally, the Abakash label claims teamwork & an affinity for ones craft to be at its foundation. Allow us to elaborate on these ideals and introduce to you the teams that make up ‘Abakash’.
