Story Behind the Art:
During my visits to remote areas in Rajasthan, like Barmer and Balotra, I came to realize that in order to survive in such arid difficult terrain, people have developed beautiful crafting techniques to earn a livelihood. I was fascinated by the awesomeness of their arts and crafts designs, and so I decided to work with them. Hello. I am Osho from the beautiful city of Jaipur, Rajasthan, known as the India's Pink City. Although I belong to Rajasthan, I was born in Siwan, Bihar, 3rd July, 1989. 'I studied engineering in Bangalore and worked as an executive engineer in a textile and apparel company. But the desire to do something creative brought me to the world of craft. 'I was not well acquainted with art techniques, so I decided to learn from people who are masters in this craftwork. I am a very hard working and dedicated person. I am very passionate about my work. When I started this venture after I left my job, I had to struggle to put together a good team. Now, I have my own workshop where I work with great teams of artisans. I connect them to government agencies that offer them training and support, as well as exposure to trade fairs to exhibit their works of art. 'We use cotton fabric for all the tapestries. Raw fabrics are processed before printing. We mostly use organic colors for printing. The desire to create new designs each day is quite challenging, but the enthusiasm of my fellow artisans inspires us to create beautiful designs. We mostly create traditional designs, preserving Indias rich heritage. 'We participate in fairs mostly organized by the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH.) 'The best part about our craft is the influence it has on so many artisan families. Providing a consistent source of income to the ladies is one of the best things. The women in the family can work from their homes for our projects. This is really important to them since women in the remote areas of Rajasthan do not wish to leave their homes for work. We provide them with the basic tools and sewing machines they need in their homes. 'We maintain a separate fund which is used to support weddings and other urgent expenses that might come up in an artisan's families. We keep all the local artisans updated about the government schemes benefiting them and assist them to be a part of the schemes. 'The trust that artisans have given us, and our responsibility towards their success drives us to do better each day. I want to create an ecosystem where artisans are informed about the latest trends in the market and that we bring out innovative products crafted by them. This shall bring prosperity to them and to the whole communities.'

This beach blanket is much thinner than I expected! So much nicer than a beach towel! Sheds the sand, and drys so much quicker

It's light and doesn't collect sand like towels do. It's large so I just plop down in the middle and surround myself with my beach gear. I highly recommend. I plan on getting more.

This is not a beach blanket. It’s more like sheet material. There is too much white to be used for festivals. It would be destroyed. It’s a waste for me. It is beautiful but not useful.
Questions & Answers
Hi Karen, It's more of a beach mat. You could use it as a table cloth. For a scarf it would be huge. It's not a towel because it is not of an loop style fabric. For beach, picnic etc. It's ideal and it's beautiful.
