Art: Crochet. Crochet is a process of creating fabric from yarn, thread, or other material strands using a crochet hook. The word is derived from the French word "crochet", meaning hook. Crocheting, is quite similar to knitting, it consists of pulling loops of yarn through other loops. Crochet differs from knitting in that only one loop is active at one time (the sole exception being Tunisian crochet), and that a single crochet hook is used instead of two knitting needles. Creating crochet jewellery is a painstaking process and involves a number of hours. A love of labour quite literally.
Region: Bihar: is an eastern state of India. A state with one of the highest population below 25years. It has greatly progressed in the last decade. Culturally known for its paintings and weaving skills passed on from generations. Patna and Gaya in Bihar are known for seri culture and crochet work.
Social Impact : At Craftsvilla we are dedicated to supporting the artisans, who have preserved our rich and diverse heritage and culture and are now finding it difficult to sustain it. We support them by providing them employment and bringing to the world their priceless art in the form of our products. Often we have been able to revive a form of art dying out, due to lack of funds and provide a source of income to countless families. Taking this one step further we
have also established a Craftsvilla fund in support of these artisans.
