Textiles of India 2
The human hand is an amazing tool that can turn a feeling into something material in the blink of an eye. As human beings, we have always used our hands to create by bringing together different elements of living—our own heads and hearts, the lives of those before us, what we treasure and seek to cultivate, as well as the spark of passion. India is a country that has long valued the role of human hands in shaping day-to-day life. Whilst traveling north to south across India, we focused on the hand as a tool of wonder, learning from cultures built on hand craftsmanship.
Working by hand is a natural part of every village and town that we visited. An integral part of daily life here. Each hand-created object is subtly different from the next, imitating the natural world, where each creature is unique. These differences are the inevitable and natural outcome of hand craftsmanship. Contemplate the handmade, and you witness the personality of the individuals who created it.
