ABOUT DASTKAR:

Started in 1981, Dastkar affects the lives of more than 1 lakh artisans every year working with over 600 crafts groups across 29 India States. We strongly believe in crafts as catalytic tool for social and economic empowerment and earning. Dastkar’s role is to help craftspeople find the opportunity, confidence & resources to become self-sufficient. Our Bazaars and Exhibitions provide craftspeople with exposure and direct interaction with the urban customers, enabling them to gauge market trends and customer demands for themselves.

“Dastkar and our family of participating craftspeople love Bangalore! We always get such a responsive, enthusiastic reaction to both the products and the craftspeople who make them. Dastkar’s objective is to bridge the gap of awareness and interaction between the craftsperson and the consumer without the intervention of government agencies or commercial middleman. In Bangalore you really see that happen. This latest exhibition will bring together more than 130 craft groups, artisans and designers from 20 states across India.”says Laila Tyabji (Founder of Dastkar)
