THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Sajad
"Hello, my name is Syed Sajad Hussain. I was born in Kashmir. I have inherited these rich craft traditions from my ancestors, who have been creating exquisite handicrafts for a long time. Ever since I began, I have been always keen about one thing and that is quality.
"My designs include chain-stitched rugs, shawls, pashminas, hand-painted papier maché, table linens and bedspreads. I think there are a lot of things involved in making your art worthwhile. Apart from quality, the color combination counts a lot. I put a lot of effort into blending colors to create the most unique items. This is the plus in my designs. Though modern style has mass appeal, traditional style is undying and will always be as enchanting as it was 100 years ago.
"You have given me a great platform for artisans, one through which all art lovers can appreciate and acquire unique objects from around the world. And I am sure this relationship with you will open up new avenues.""
