Art & Craft Expo : Jaipur

There is something very special about handcrafted things, you can appreciate the thought, detail and time invested into creating something amazing. Whether they are big or small, handmade goods are accessible works of art. The fact is when you buy a handcrafted object, you are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You are buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone’s life and most importantly you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about.

The “Art and Craft Expo”, held at Jawahar Kala Kendra – Jaipur, was a mecca of all things handmade- be it apparel, jewellery, handbags, paintings, pottery and other decor related stuff. And though it wasn’t held at the plush interiors and comfort of a five-star hotel, One could spend hours exploring and marvelling at the beauty of these handmade things. If you were planning to renovate or decorate your house- it was the place to be. Money can’t buy love but it can buy you all these beautiful handcrafted things and it is almost the same thing 🙂
