#NICEStories: Prosperity Mirra – Bringing back the reds and the blues in home decor through the art of Terracotta
Prosperity is a craft enterprise focusing on Terracotta & Blue Pottery crafts from the different parts of India. They aspire to bridge the gap between traditional artisans & craft lovers, to cover the distance between remote villages of India and international craft destinations, to cross the divide between aesthetic products and pocket-friendliness and to find a balance between a rich design heritage and modern-day needs.
While art auctions and exhibitions build a perception of high value, this is seen more widely abroad. Yet only by a niche audience views Indian arts and crafts with value. India’s rich heritage and culture contributes to a beautiful spectrum of arts and crafts across the country. They are slowly lost due to lack of awareness. This is where EkiBeki steps in, a company that prizes rural craft above all, giving it a contemporary flair to create stunning pieces. They work towards making Indians more aware about the treasure trove of art in India, while also creating livelihoods for artisans.
