It is true that our world has become convenient because of industrialization, however, MUJI who has started as antithesis of commercialism feels beauty of handiwork products are not able to be replaced by industrial products, and we have been doing the activity of exploring to find such handiwork products which still exists at each place in the world to introduce to you. 
 
Held as a continuation to “Khadi: Against Industrialization”, this exhibition explores adding colours to the handspun experience of India’s traditional handiwork. As block prints are done by eye, telltale signs of the human hand can be observed. These imperfections, are part of the ineffable humanity and beauty of the craft. Through hands-on activity and workshops, we hope you will gain an appreciation for the making and resulting beauty of handiwork.
