The ever-changing means of expressing art greatly affect the arts, crafts and textiles. As machine made products continue to take over the world market, the skilled artisans struggle to find a way to keep these rare skills and art forms alive on their own. So, it becomes our responsibility as students, as art enthusiasts to spread awareness about these rare and dwindling art forms and artisans. The exercise aimed at researching about and understanding the logistics of various Indian arts and crafts which are lesser known as compared to others. Study was done to learn about them, the materials and processes involved and its application. The final part of the exercise required to design a product that incorporated the art form in a traditional or contemporary fashion, taking inspiration from the same.
