In India, a handicraft piece is not just another product meant to be sold or showcased. With all its artistic depictions manifested outside, in its deepest centre lies the heart of the craftsmen of India, an aroma of the land of India.

However, in last few decades, with advancements in science and technology, this culture seemed to vanish under the glossy machine-made items and artificial decorations.
