The unique and distinctivtive style of our product range comes out through combinations of different mediums such as iron, brass, stone, wood, bamboo and fabric.
We believe in empowering craftsmen and not in doing charity. Todays idea of "development" has broken the link which connects us to the whole. In modern times nature is commodified and relationships have turned into transactions. Devrai Art Village attemps to mend this broken link and make the process of creation a joyous experience.
