Crafts Council revives dying art - Tv9

Fri, Oct 24, 2014, 08:22 PM
Crafts Council of Andhra Pradesh, was established in 1987 to work for the upliftment of crafts and craftsmen. It is a voluntary and non-profit organisation. It is a part of Crafts Council of India started by well known freedom fighter Kamala Devi Cattopadhyaya in 1964.
A dedicated team travels to several parts of India, looking for unique skill and the best quality. The council works towards promoting handicraft artisans and their products through various exhibitions to sell their products.
At some point in the late 80s, families skilled in the unique Banjara style of embroidery at Yellamma Thanda in Ibrahimpatnam mandal stopped doing what they were good at and started migrating to the capital in hope of a better life.
Asuccess story is that Banjara women of some region who had a distintive needlework had to leave for city for livelihood. With the help of the council the people could form self-help groups to sell their own unique designs independently. Now they earn a good amount of money every year.
