My shop is an Outlet for My Creativity, made possible by my team members and my customers who appreciate our work.
Namaste, I grew in India amidst all the exquisite handicrafts, bright colors, holy festivals, centuries old arts and painstakingly hardworking artisans. However, sadly, the richer our culture heritage, the poorer are our artisans and craftsmen.
That is why, I started “MYARTANDKRAFT’’, shop to support my fellow country men and women so that their handiwork gets the much deserved exposure in the world and they get the desperately needed income (almost all the craftsmen are below poverty line.) 90% of the profit from the sales goes directly to the craftsmen. This helps them to sustain their livelihood ( proper meals for the family and education for their kids).
I design the products and help the artists in the manufacturing process so that they keep up with the changing times and understand the demand of the people from countries outside India. I take care of the photography, online shop, parcel shipping, correspondence with the customers etc. I keep 10% of the profit so that I can manage to continue doing this for a long time possible.
Me and my entire team of craftsmen that come from different parts of the country appreciate and thank you for visiting our shop. We also look forward to doing business with you so that we can share a piece of India and its rich heritage with you.
Om Shanti !
beautiful delicate cushion cover
It took a while, but yesterday they arived: the cushion covers I ordered. And they are even more beautiful that the picture promised; bright colors, delicate stitching. A real bonus to my couch! Thanks to the people who made these beautiful covers, your work brings joy to my home which is halfway across the globe :-)
Colorful and Versatile
I loved my bed coverlet. The colors were even more vibrant than the photo was able to portray and the craftsmanship was astounding. I love coming into my bedroom and seeing it on my bed or enjoying the color draped over the chair in my family room. It adds beauty no matter where it is used.
A For Effort
I don't like to write a bad review. I believe the craftsman could use the patronage. I am disappointed in the 2 bedspreads. I had hesitation ordering because I could not see the full spread laid out in the description. I would not have purchased that design or that filler fabric. The turquoise spread is fine. It's cotton and hand stitched and beautiful. Since it has no filler fabric, not mentioned in the description, it will be useful in warmer weather only. I am hesitant to buy from the site again. The descriptions are not clear enough. The photos don't tell that some of the fabrics are polyester. Also, when the product is out of stock I find it has been difficult to communicate what should be done with the overpayment and/or substituting items. Having said all that...I am not going to ask to return the 2 bedspreads because the price was so low. I think I'll try to wash them to loosen their stiffness. I still have not received a refund or replacement items. Maybe you have some hints on how to estimate what I will be getting since the descriptions are sparse. Thanks.
Excellent and beautiful!
I ordered two blankets. They arrived quickly. They are really beautiful. Good quality, cheerful colors. i'm happy. I will make curtains of them. I made curtains of blankets like these before. They really are worn out after at least 20 years of use, so I really needed new ones. I thank you very much! Iris Take from Holland.

Beautiful mix of Mexican design with Indian craftmanship
On arrival i was even more surprised about the originalty and the quality of the blanket. Heavy duty quality of the cotton and beautiful combination of patterns. As a beach lover i will use this blanket oftenthis summer, also because of the comfortable XL size. Recommended!
