About Indian Woodcraft & Artisans

Woodcraft in India is dated back to the ancient times of Maharajas. Initially, the art was limited to carving sculptures and windows of temples and palaces. Over many generations and under the influence of its region's culture and locally available wood the art form has evolved and now extends to articles like furniture, decorative pieces, storage boxes,  table lamps, toys and puppets


India has an abundance of native wood that lends well to the carving and inlay work. Some of the examples are Ebony, Rosewood, Sandalwood, Sheesham, and Sal.

The diversity of each region's style and carving technique reflects in the motifs, and patterns on each carved article. The geometrical and floral patterns are the most popular.

In many regions, woodcraft production is vital for community livelihoods. By participating with Fair Trade organisations, we contribute to alleviating poverty and promoting sustainability through ethical practices. These organisations aim to educate and empower disadvantaged sections of the Indian community by providing them with job opportunities, gender equality, fair wages, safe and healthy working environment while preserving the local culture & traditional skills.
