Story Behind the Art: 'India Social was founded in 2000 to create opportunities for Indian craftspeople,' says spokesman Mukesh. 'There are more than 1,000 artisan clusters in India. To help empower these talented people, we offer training workshops in design and skill enhancement to help revive the old crafts. We also work on market access for artisans.' Mehfooz Ahmed affirms this with his story. 'Being involved in work that provides a livelihood and future to the real creators of traditionally crafted designs makes the whole process immensely fulfilling and worthwhile.'
