For this project, which aims at engaging new generation artisans who are drifting away from their family’s craft practice, Development Commissioner has engaged designers from leading design institutes of India for imparting training to artisans.

Total 40 artisans with a majority of women from Jodhpur, Bhabaneswar and Narsapur, trained by these designers, were brought to showcase their existing skills with newer ideas at this year’s fair. Buyers and visitors are said to find these products innovative as they are paying heavy attention to the exhibitor’s stalls.
