About the Craft: A signature craft from the communities of the north-east India, Basket weaving is a common occupational practice that can be witnessed adorning many utility aspects of a home. Also known less popularly as Kaunsa Grasscraft, the process involves cutting the reed at the base and drying it in the sun before it is woven into beautiful bags and accessories that are more than a great replacement for any plastic accessory!
About the Artist: Run by Sangita Keisham, the organisation supports above 1000 Manipuri women. After schooling in Manipur, Sangita graduated from Ramjas College in Delhi, and then returned to her hometown to put her education into supporting the handicrafts that enrich her community. In her words, “My team of women get ‘Josh’ when they see their products are being bought with love. They do the handicraft production work and at the same time they are doing the house work and working for their families too, to keep them happy”.
