The Craft Safari And a Give-Away

An initiative called The Craft Safari, started by two craft lovers,  Geetha Mary Jimmy and Ann Thomas, based in UAE has grown as a venture since 2011, bringing the best of indigenous crafts from across India to everyone’s home. Their products range from Terracotta lanterns, Ganeshas, Copper Bells from Kutch, Bastar crafts, Longpi from Manipur, DIY Craft kits, Charmakari Danglers, Paper Machie crafts, Dhokra, Rajasthani Jharokhas and musicians, stone craft , Aranmula mirror from Kerala and Wood block carving from UP. Besides sourcing handpicked products, they also provide craft workshops. Recently they had the Kerala Mural Painting workshop which was a huge success. As of now they sell through exhibitions and fairs.

Have a look at their product range and I am already tempted to buy something from them soon. If you have any enquiries please write to thecraftsafari@gmail.com and click here to access their facebook page.

The candle holder is a charming way of decorating a room and the elephant gives a traditional look to any background. The elegance of this candle holder is quite fascinating.

Firstlt thanks for the giveaway...this is my third attempt at pisting a comment....
goes to show how much i like this artefact....
Infact I love elephants....u will see the craze when u visit my home.....so much so that u will find elephant toys and printed tees for my 7month old...and no this affinity does not stem from the fact that i was addressed as one as a kid...lol

The Rain and Storm God, is sometimes depicted riding on an elephant with a lightning bolt on his forehead. this piece of art absolutely depicts the same.

This Dhokra candle stand is an example of the beautiful art and craft that our country has to offer. A little something that lights up my living room or dining table. I am sure it will bring on a cosy, romantic evening.
