A few years back, we worked with Craft Resource Centre (Kolkata), who were in the process of documenting the work of the artisans who worked with them. We traveled extensively to the villages around Kolkata. The images were used to create their fair trade brand called Fair & Square.
In India a lot of these traditional arts and crafts have disappeared with people finding better opportunities elsewhere. However, those who want to continue are able to do so, thanks to organisations like CRC, who work with a lot of producer groups and help them get fair wages.
