Karigari the collective was founded in 2016 with the aim to bring to the audience of UK, a well curated collection of high quality handcrafted and ethically sourced wares from India. Each designer seeks to showcase the rich and vast heritage of karigari – craftsmanship, by incorporating in their work the various craft traditions found in India. Each designer works closely with craftsmen and artisans from the Indian subcontinent who in some cases are carrying on traditions that are generations old. By supporting these artists they hope to ensure that these rich traditions will carry on for a long time to come. The aim of the collective is to not only to sell these beautiful products but also in the process make the customer aware of the journey, the history and the story behind each craft traditions.
