Turbancart : Discover True India

The crafts of India are diverse, rich in history and religion. The craft of each state in India reflect the influence of different empires. Throughout centuries, crafts have been embedded as a culture and tradition within rural communities.

At earlier stage, Indian-handicrafts had been used as utility items to fulfill their need but now these products have become the creation of Art and are used for decorations. The manufacturer took their items from one place to other and they became famous for their craft. The craftsmen made extra efforts to develop something special and valuable products for Kings and queens of their time, they usually wanted to show their skills and to make king and queen happy so that they can be rewarded by them. Now those valuable things can be seen in the museums around the world. Those people who have been preserving the talent and the traditions of making Indian handicraft goods called Indian artisans, and govt. appreciate their efforts to keep classical art alive and rewarded by various National Awards. Time to time govt. organised exhibitions and craft fairs “Mela” to promote Indian Art and Crafts every year.

When it comes to the Industrial growth then India is the well-known country for its handlooms and handicraft sector. These are the two major areas that play a vital role in the country’s economy. This is the biggest source of livelihood for many. Over the years, the government is making huge investments in the handicraft sector to make the art of the country contribute to the economic growth. With the years of efforts, the Indian handloom industry has created a niche all over the world. The phenomenal result of which can be seen all over the world. The sector of handicraft is not only provides employment for the development of economy but it also acts as a sensible artistic approach of self-expression for the artisans. Handicrafts are matchless expressions as they represent culture, tradition, and heritage of a country. Handicraft sector is directly related to the economy of the rural India that means its growth, and downfall is the mirror image of rural economy as well as the economy as a whole related to the economy of the rural India that means its growth, and downfall is the mirror image of rural economy as well as the economy as a whole.

But it’s been 70 years of India’s Independence and once when someone asked a question, “Are you Independent?” to an artisan of this nation, what his answer his answer clearly gave the reflect of his plight. India the country which has been famous for its varied handicrafts through times immemorial now has lost its interest in its own tradition. The citizens here in the shine of western culture have forgot their own glory and whatever glory and related talents are left they have been crushed by the middle men. The traditional craftsmen who are still trying to keep alive are traditions are being crushed by the ignorance of their own countrymen due to which they are not provided with the ample reward for their efforts.

TURBANCART is an initiative for such talents to release them from the web of middlemen and provide them an online market so that they can no longer be deprived from what is their right. Here at TURBANCART we initiate to pick handicrafts from the remote areas of India starting from a few states of India like Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Sikkim, Jammu And Kashmir etc. and display their arts online where they can get direct customers who value their arts thus giving them a slight relief from the plight of middleman and patronizing Indians once again towards the handicraft of their country.
