About the Event

The Crafts of India are a mirror of the cultural identity of the ethnic people who make it. They carry the magnetic appeal of the Indian culture that promises exclusivity, beauty, dignity and style. Craft Village brings you the second chapter of GMR India Craft Week — a five-day long celebration of finest craftsmanship that binds art, design and culture. It brings together craftsmen, designers, craftpreneurs, institutions, brands and organizations through workshops, live demonstrations, installations, folk performances and cross-talks.

India Craft Week (ICW) showcases authentic and contemporary craft forms by master craftsmen and luxury brands under five unique segments – Craft Workshops, Craft Rare, Craft Panorama, Craft Luxe and Craft Installations.
