Posted on February 16th, 2019 06:30 PM

The crafts industry is slowing dying and with it the valuable heritage of various cultures...

In a world absorbed with fast fashion and changing trends, growing industrialization and dependency on technology, we are losing touch with the whimsical art of handmade; moving towards innovation is inevitable and a vital part of our evolution, however being in touch with our roots has helped us cherish our journey so far. Creating with our hands is not only connected with aesthetic beauty, it shapes us spiritually, in the same way when we eat with our hands instead of a spoon. 


THE FADING ART & SOME HANDS OF HOPE...


We at Gulmohar Lane love handmade, we think handmade, we make handmade but what is it that makes handmade so special to us? As unique as each person in the world, each handmade piece is an art made with love and there is never a need for an upgrade as it is born perfect! An indigenous expression of faith, supplemented by the transitory and dynamic patterns of life, hand made crafts are deeply rooted in a communal diction and speak volumes of India’s cultural ancestry. 


It’s the minute imperfections that make it so desirable. Each handmade piece is about people, it’s about the skill of each maker and the magic of their imagination. With passion and conviction, hand made crafts create social bonds by placing emotion at the heart and by instilling meaning into cultural practices - a wonderful way to add beauty to life, handmade seamlessly connects our mind with our heart.


Amidst all the grave conditions, handcraft industry in India is facing, we are stepping forward to shower our love on everything handmade, celebrating the beauty of the age-old hand made craft of Cane Rattan Work and hand-built Furniture. Descending from colonial times in India, and reflecting the time, care and patience needed to make something by hand come to life; we truly believe that the best stories are handmade! With its roots in Southern and North Eastern states, Rattan furniture’s visual appeal and comfort cannot be surpassed. While, it automatically transports you to your grandparents’ house during the summers of 90s, enjoying the storytelling and some lemonade, it’s an ideal choice for all of you who love to go green and want a rustic appeal in their home décor. With our Rattan Collection, Gulmohar Lane is striving to amalgamate contemporary design aesthetics with the timeless art of rattan furniture making in some charismatic silhouettes.
