Ethnic crafts for urbanites

FOR THE aesthetically inclined Bangaloreans, Yamini is holding a festival, Crafts Focus. The ongoing festival ends on November 18.

It focuses on various crafts of Karnataka.

One can meet crafts persons, who not only have displayed their works, but are also selling them. Demonstrations are part of this festival.

The idea was triggered off when Sherree Carlos, CEO, Yamini, visited the Kamala Crafts festival and the Vastrabharana sale. She says she was "amazed at the wealth and diversity of crafts in Karnataka."

The festival has lacquer toys from Chennapatna, handcrafted terracotta jewellery, kasuti embroidery products from Dharwad, and Chittarra baskets from Shimoga. Yamini, at 11/2, Haudin Road, Ulsoor, can be contacted on 51134781.
