Living in the middle of Rajasthan conjurs up all sorts of images; those of people, animals, forts and sand dunes - but especially the image of colour. It is hard not to feel inspired by the beauty of the desert and the way her people manage to carve out their lives.  
  It is these lives that we are trying to support, those small groups of artisans that survive on their age old skills in an effort to keep their traditional lifestyles from disappearing. Skills that have been passed down from Father to Son, from generation to generation.  
  This partnership we have with the artisans allows both of us to continue down our paths, using traditional skills as the base to creative design.
