The hands behind the handicrafts

Gentle touch on the art surface, but coarse with years of roughing it out. These hands have life-giving powers, yet their livelihood is in danger. The source of all art, these hands have raised civilizations. But still, thanklessly toil day-in and day-out. These hands create magic but rarely are there an audience to applaud. These hands create priceless art, yet not aptly valued for their worth. When the human spirit speaks through the artisan’s hands, the world listens with their ears wide open. Like their art pieces bring you happiness, your hands could be a source of joy for them. Because we believe 'Happiness is Handcrafted'.

Let’s celebrate the lines on their hands, like how we celebrate the patterns they design. Let’s celebrate their dexterous fingers, like how we embrace the aesthetic details they curate.
