…and so begins our journey…
‘The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’ – Chinese Proverb
The journey of Mudita Crafts has begun with a single, small step as well. It is a journey towards believing in our vision, fulfilling our goals and realizing our objectives.
Mudita, a word originally from the ancient languages of Pali and Sanskrit, means pure joy that is unadulterated with any self-interest and is derived from the good fortune of others. Mudita has great significance in Buddhism and is one of the four states of mind or the ‘Four Immeasurables’ which are known as the ‘Brahma Vihara’.
Mudita Crafts is an organization that believes in the same principles. It is dedicated towards supporting and promoting the traditional heritage of handloom and handicrafts of India and offers a range of exquisitely designed authentic products made by the unparalleled craftsmanship of artisans from eastern India and Bengal in particular.
At Mudita Crafts, we feel proud and blessed to belong to a country and region that has such vibrant and glorious artistic traditions and creates such breathtakingly beautiful handicraft and handloom products. Each and every piece crafted by these incomparably talented artisans is a masterpiece in itself. However, it is a real pity that seldom do they get the amount of appreciation that they so richly deserve.
The primary vision and endeavour of Mudita Crafts is to support the incredibly skilled artisans and craftsmen of India by providing them a conducive and sustainable livelihood option to support their artistic pursuits. We are firmly against child labour and are focused towards ensuring that the children of the artisans are not engaged in any labourous jobs and get the required education and health benefits that is their right.
We are also committed towards offering our customers with the best and choicest eco-friendly hand crafted products which we firmly believe will help, support and encourage good artistry and craftsmanship.
For us at Mudita Crafts, our journey towards fulfilling our goals has just begun. It is an endeavour towards giving support and dignity to the artisans. It is a vision towards providing products of the finest quality and standards to our customers and it is a sincere effort towards giving respect and honour to the magnificent art and tradition of creating handicraft and handloom products of India.
