The concept of Kala Aparajita emerged from VHAI’s work with artisans in its post disaster programme (Orissa and Gujarat) and the grassroot projects all over India. The beauty and skill of the products produced by these artisans were enthralling. But we realised their constraints in marketing and developing their products due to lack of adequate information, working capital and specialized design inputs, and compounding these factors is the dependence on middlemen who pay meager rates and focus on quantity rather than quality.
