ART STORY

 

Jawaja Leather BagA pioneering experiment was conducted in the 1970s, to bring the people of Jawaja, a drought prone region in Rajasthan out of poverty. The project sought to prove that indigenous skills could be used to secure livelihoods of a region that the government designated as having no resources.

Design and management volunteers from The Rural University, National Institute of Design (NID) and Indian Institute of Management (IIM) collaborated with Raigar leather artisans and Bunkar weavers of the region to co-create products with contemporary sensibilities that the artisans could then market worldwide.

 

Today, the Artisans Alliance Jawaja (AAJ), is a self-reliant organization born out of this project that continues to hand-craft leather products and dhurries of superior quality in a distinct style that has come to be associated with the cluster.
