ARTISANS OF KOLKATA

In 2009, we worked with Craft Resource Centre (CRC Kolkata, India) in the process of documenting the work of their artisans.

In India, many of these traditional arts and crafts have disappeared with people finding more lucrative opportunities elsewhere. However, those who wish to continue are able to do so, thanks to organizations like CRC, who work along with producer groups and help them receive fair wages.

These images which were taken during our extensive travels to the villages around Kolkata were used to create their fair trade brand called Fair & Square.
