The desert fair
Wide ranges of hand woven textiles, contemporary apparels, home linen and an array of hand-crafted accessories and decoratives in clay, wood, metal and leather from both the states will be on display at the bazaar. The bazaar also will be working towards revitalizing languishing crafts of the region that include the likes of Tangaliya and Patola Ikat textiles, Khavda painted pottery and Lippan mud work, works from the region of Kutch, the art of Kaavads, marble crafts, hand-block printed legacies and much more.

The traditional patterns, handed down over time and inspired from nature and surrounding elements, are skillfully printed onto cotton textiles to create beautiful dupattas, sarees, yardage and home linen for the contemporary market. During Desert Crafts, Chhipa Yasin will also be displaying his National Award winning piece which will give a glimpse into the traditional motifs and colours used in Dabu hand-block printing 80 years ago. These artisans and many more will be displaying their traditional hand skills translated into contemporary products at the venue.

Folk music and dance performances from Rajasthan from the 23 to 25 of August, and folk dance performance from Gujarat from the 29 to 31 of August promise to make the event an enjoyable experience for the entire family. Don't miss it!
