THE STORY
Reviving the 200 year old craft of etikoppaka lacquer toys from Andhra Pradesh, this range has experimented with pure indigo dyeing to create organic laquer jars. Also featured are trays, boxes and serveware in bamboo, sabaii grass and wood. These products are created by craftspersons from villages in West Bengal & Orissa adopted by Kadam-Haat, which helps to create a conducive self-sustaining environment within the villages. Kadam is a society for the people of rural West Bengal & Orissa with its base in Kolkata. Currently working in West & East Midnapore villages, it is helping to reverse the migration of youth to urban towns and to empower women within the villages. Etikoppaka is an old craft from Andhra Pradesh, where natural-dyed lacquer toys were created for supply across the country. The process of making these wooden handicrafts is known as Turned Wood Lacquer Craft; or ‘Tharini’. Sabaii Grass is a perennial grass which grows in West Bengal & Orissa, primarily in the Mayurbhanj area. Kadam-haat works with craftspersons from the area to create contemporary products using this grass, allowing them to self-sustain themselves during non-farming seasons as well.
