We aim at reviving and restyling some of the eclipsed traditional Indian crafts and restore them to their former glory. The Indian sub continent has been a meeting point for various peoples and cultures who came together to borrow from and so enrich each other's arts and crafts. This alchemy of crafts honed to perfection by master craftspersons of Central Europe, Middle East,
and others from across the globe led to a profusion of amazing styles and art products which were highly prized and traded in widely.
The industrial revolution brought us many good things, but also swept aside many finer arts in its race for speed and consumerism. If we are to save these art forms before they dissapear altogether, it is imperative that we own and celebrate our indeginous hand crafts in textiles, embroidery, jewelry and other every day household articles.
The guiding principles of our business at Mynahs Tree are:
Preference to hand crafted products made with traditional Indian techniques.
Sourcing products from NGOs and small women entreprenuers to help empower and sustain them.
Using traditional crafts to style contemporary and aesthetically delightful personal products.
We offer handspun , hand printed and hand embroidered women's clothing, pashmina scarves for men and women, home linen and hand made jewelry in 924 sterling silver and semi precious gem stones. When you shop with us, you contribute towards sustainence of these traditional crafts and empowering the deprived strata of artisans.
