Craft Resource Center
For over 26 years, Craft Resource Center (CRC) has been working with over 5,000 artisans in rural and urban slums in Calcutta, India, to develop economic self-sufficiency for vulnerable artisans through skills and technology training. CRC is well known for creating woven products using the Jamdani technique, recognized by UNESCO as a traditional art form, comprised of vibrant, sheer cotton fabric, traditionally woven on a handloom, inspired by nature and floral patterns. CRC provides the dignity of employment and creative work with locally available materials and traditional techniques.
“Our work is not merely an eye-pleasing motif but a symbol of turning the tide on adversaries. We are non-believers of status quo; we are change makers.”
