OUR VISION

India is made of makers – our cities and villages are a confluence of every skill and material – forging, weaving, sculpting the tradition and the future of the country. It is a pulsating living culture, all-pervasive across the time and place continuum.
India has approximately 200 million artisans* from master craftspersons, micro-entrepreneurs to piece rate, and job workers. They are the crafters of creativity within our culture but go unrecognized within the vast informal workforce. At this time of upheaval, we have an opportunity to re-imagine a more self-reliant, sustainable and ecologically sound future. Creative manufacturing can be the foundation of the next regenerative economy.
Our purpose is to enable vulnerable creative producers to enjoy secure and stable livelihoods and enable an ecosystem that ensures their health and wellbeing. We invite all who love the cultural creative manufacturing that we call ‘craft’ to contribute to the endeavour.
* 7 million is the official figure but guesstimates place it at nearly 200 million

On this International Day of Rural Women, we are delighted to announce that Okhai, one of our e-commerce partners for the ongoing Artisan Direct National Edit, is launching a helpline for the rural artisan women. 

The textiles and handicraft industry is the second-largest employment provider in India.  The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the craft sector of India. A large number of artisans have no work and many mouths to feed. To better the situation for Indian artisans, @creativedignity has collaborated with @okhai_org for this much-needed initiative.

An artisan can call to register the issue they are facing, the product they make, the number of artisans part of their collective, and their geographical location. Okhai and Creative Dignity will try to find a solution to their problem by connecting them to individuals and organizations looking for makers of that particular craft.

Our hope is that this helpline will become a source of hope for artisans in the remotest parts of India.

Members of the Joshi family have played a significant role in the revival and preservation of the Phad art form.

Historically, it was believed that the secrets of Phad painting should be confined to the Joshi family of Bhilwara, Rajasthan. Consequently, even the daughters were not taught this art. However, when Shree Lal Joshi, a Padma Shri, and Shilp Guru awardee, realized that this is causing this ancient folk art to fade, he broke away with tradition and established Chitrashala in 1960. Under the patronage of his sons, Gopal and Kalyan Joshi, this revival effort has expanded. Over the years, more than 3,000 artists have been trained at Chitrashala, some of whom have won the national award too.

The Joshi family has not only preserved a significant folk-art form but also the painstaking method of making natural pigments and the time-intensive traditional methods of making a Phad.

Kalyan Joshi is credited with contemporizing and expanding the themes depicted in a traditional Phad painting. Historically, only tales of local heroes like Pabuji and local deities such as Devnarayanji were narrated. He has depicted stories and characters from the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, Hanuman Chalisa, and even the Panchatantra. To make it commercially viable, the size of Phad paintings was also reduced considerably, and today, they are made as small as 2, 4, or 6 feet. This is unlike the traditional Phad scrolls which are nearly 30 feet long and 5 feet wide.

CD, as part of its ongoing campaign Artisan Direct National Edit, has partnered with the eminent artist Kalyan Joshiji. Joshiji is showcasing his collection of Phad paintings at Zwende @zwendedesign our e-commerce partner. Show your support for this amazing artist and guru.

Phad art form combines performing arts & visual art. This art form, nearly 700 years old, is a significant folk narrative tradition of Bhilwara, Rajasthan. Phad is a scroll painting that depicts stories about local heroes & deities. Created as mobile shrines, these paintings were carried by the priest-singers of the Rabari tribe, called Bhopas & Bhopis, who would sing and perform stories of their local deities - Devnarayanji (a reincarnation of Vishnu) & Pabuji (a local hero). The painting would be unfolded after sunset and the performance in front of villagers would last into the night. This is perhaps why the paintings are called ‘Phad’, which means ‘fold’ in the local dialect.

While the male priest (Bhopa) would sing & narrate the story depicted in the Phad painting, his wife (Bhopi) would accompany through song & dance, while also pointing to the corresponding section in the painting, using a lamp. A two-string instrument called the ‘ravanhatta’ would be used in the performance.

The traditional paintings used to be large, with “Pabuji ki Phad”, or Phad paintings of Pabuji being 13 armlengths long, those of Devnarayanji being almost 30 feet long. With the efforts of distinguished Phad artists, the themes depicted in the paintings have expanded & contemporized & to suit modern homes, their sizes have reduced considerably.

Kalyanji Joshi, a renowned Phad artist, started narrating stories of characters other than Devnarayanji & Pabuji in Phad paintings. Stories from the Ramayana, the Mahabharata, Hanuman Chalisa, & even the Panchatantra were introduced making the paintings more appealing to a larger audience.

CD is delighted to collaborate with Kalyanji who is showcasing his collection of Phad paintings at @zwendedesign our e-commerce partner.

The Artisan Direct National Edit is collaborating with Indian artisans from various states, facilitating their access to new markets digitally. Many of these artisans have had no digital access previously. We are excited to share with you that as part of the ongoing campaign, we are bringing you the exquisite crafts of chikankari, durries, miniature murtikari, and kitemaking from the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

Creative Dignity has partnered with six e-commerce platforms - Okhai, iTokri, FreedomTree, GoCoop, Zwende, and Jaypore to enable artisans to reach consumers globally. Our partners have very generously reduced their margins to boost stock sales of the artisans involved. This ongoing campaign facilitating artisans and artisan led organizations' access to new markets is supported by FICCI FLO - the women’s wing of FICCI.

The Indian artisan community is facing a dire situation, a consequence of the COVID-19 crisis. They are struggling with piles of unsold inventory, cancellation of orders, and a shortage of raw material. Interventions such as Artisan Direct National Edit are connecting artisans to newer markets by partnering with craft e-commerce platforms. We encourage you to go to our e-commerce partners’ websites and explore the collections put together by artisans, our volunteers, and partner organizations with a great deal of love, hope, and hard work.

Our everyday actions and choices can have the cumulative effect of getting the craft sector back on its feet. Let’s make sure that this festive season is truly festive for Indian artisans and their families.

Creative Dignity began as a deliberate coming together of people and organizations moved by the predicament of Indian artisans and their families severely impacted by the COVID-19 crisis. With no shilp bazaars, fair trade events, and craft melas, artisans were left in a lurch. They had piles of unsold inventory, a shortage of raw material, and no new orders. A great deal of them has been struggling to meet their basic needs. Our first priority was to provide immediate relief, followed by rehabilitation and rejuvenation.

We are happy to inform you that funds worth INR 20,81,044 have been disbursed either as ration kits or cash to 2456 distressed artisan families across India. A big thank you to all the donors.

Enameling is the process of applying a thin coat of finely ground glass to metal. When heated to a high temperature, the glass melts and fuses to the metal and creates a brilliantly coloured decorative effect. This art form is noted for its glossy surface, which is hard & long-lasting.

History of enameling can be traced back to the sixth century B.C. or even earlier, wherein Greek sculptures show surfaces with areas of inlaid metal covered with enamel. The ancient Greek goldsmiths inlaid their jewelry with thin coatings of white and blue enamel between gold wires. By the third century B.C., the enamel process had spread to England & Ireland. Slowly, it spread from Europe to Asia Minor & the Middle East, to India & China, & then to Japan by the third century A.D.

Copper Enamel Arts and Crafts associated with Creative Dignity has a range of copper enameled products such as desktop accessories, home decor artifacts, and Puja articles. It is an interesting story about how it was set up in a Konkan village.

A gentleman, Mr. Babu Mhatre, travelled to Spain in the late fifties & learned the craft under the world-renowned enamelist Sr. Sol de Villa in Barcelona. On returning to India he started exploring indigenous methods to work on this craft. He worked with Bhulabhai Memorial Institute in Mumbai during 1959-1960. After gaining popularity, he started a workshop in Alibaug where he produced lifestyle accessory products. He trained the locals in this craft who later branched out on their own to work independently and that is how it started being practiced in a Konkan village. Mr. Sanjay Patil is the master craftsman heading Copper Enamel Arts and Crafts today. CD is proud to be associated with him.

Chitrakathi paintings, part of the rich oral storytelling tradition of India, are practised by the Thakar Adivasi of Pinguli village in Maharashtra. Chitrakathi is composed of two words – ‘chitra’ meaning image and ‘kathi’ denoting story. Chitrakathi is the art of storytelling through paintings. Chitrakathi developed in the form of exquisitely painted images about religious events from the Mahabharata and the Ramayana.

Chitrakathi artists not only paint, but are also performers, composing the songs that tell stories, and performing them to music. By modulating their voice to create dialogue and drama, the performance is also backed by vocals and playing traditional musical instruments.
More than 50 paintings together form a bundle or ‘pothi’, which is used by the artist to narrate the story. The total number of pictures carefully preserved by the community is 400, out of which some are around 300 years old and some are 50 to 60 years old.

In style, the bold brushwork of Chitrakathi resembles the art of the leather shadow puppets of Telangana. The eyes are the most animated feature of the paintings. Traditionally natural dyes were used on handmade paper. The size of the paper was standardized, based on the usual size of what was suitable for the village audiences.

This ancient form of storytelling, more than 500 years old, continues to exist in Pinguli village in Sindhudurg district largely because of the efforts of Parshuram Gangawane and his family. They converted their old cowshed into a museum which also serves as a little shop to sell Chitrakathi paintings and other merchandise. They regularly hold workshops and Chitrakathi performances here. CD is proud to be associated with the Gangawane family.

Warli Art is an ancient tribal art, the roots of which may be traced back to as early as the 10th Century. It was rediscovered in the early seventies. The art form is practiced by the “Warli” tribe inhabiting the northern outskirts of Mumbai in Maharashtra. “Warli” comes from the word “warla” which means a piece of land or field. The art of decorating home walls was a medium to transmit folklore to people who were not versed in the written word.

Unlike other folk arts, Warli does not depict religious deities or recreate scenes from mythology. Inspired by nature, it is the vivid expression of their social life. Elements from nature such as sun, moon, river, animals, and birds often feature in this art form. Also, human beings are shown engaged in their daily life activities such as sowing, harvesting, hunting, drawing water from well, grinding, and even dancing. The figures and traditional motifs are repetitive, rhythmic, and highly symbolic.

Simple and rustic, it is painted in white on an austere brown surface or mud walls, decorated with occasional dots in red and yellow. White colour is obtained from grounding rice into a white powder and painted with bamboo sticks.

Nowadays, Warli paintings are also created on various surfaces such as paper, fabric, wood, metal, etc which help tribals to sell them to the wider audience. Raah Foundation @raah_foundation, associated with Creative Dignity, connects the underprivileged, talented women groups and hardworking artisans to the urban art-loving audience through the design and production of Warli artifacts ranging from home essentials, fashion accessories, office desk furniture, and personal essentials.
