Kuprkabi - Ceramic Design Studio , and Vanmala Jain have been working with artisans and crafts people from different backgrounds who have varied skills, eg. Bamboo work, terracota, cold ceramics, zari-zardozi embroidery, dari weaving etc. for several years now.

These artisans/ crafts people are associated with the studio by doing job-work, in return for marketing, promoting and positioning of their products in the domestic and international markets.

By adopting these traditional crafts, the vernacular designs get incorporated into products which find place in urban lifestyles today.

At the same time, this association provides a source of livelihood to the innumerable artisans who by themselves have no direct way of earning their living. Also it allows them to work from their own villages and communities without migrating to cities to sell their wares.

Kuprkabi - Ceramic Design Studio invites sponsors for direct and indirect funding towards such developmental programs for the artisans and craftsmen. We will only be pleased to get involved with any project that assists us in this worthy cause and are open to ideas from governments / corporates / educational institutions / NGO's and various other agencies worldwide involved with such projects.
