Amazing Obataimu in Mumbai – contemporary sustainable clothes made to order while training tailors and supporting sustainable dying.
The village bed – my favorite and in almost every village home.
The village toilet – this one is mobile.
Nothing more crafty and visually astounding than the market. These areas are the cultural hub – note the tools and multiple use of sarongs.

I am always astounded at what people do with the old and the leftovers – very crafty!
The beauty of color and material at a guru event – he was on the stage – a crafty kinda man? Or the wedding icons that seem to travel around the town on the heads of the poor.
This is a 1/4 bottle of warm fresh cows milk from the local villager. A wooden chapati board and my green metal fruit cover with a plastic leaf handle. Ahh good craft is in the eye of the beholder.

My craftless kitchen – not the luxury accomodation that was promised.
