Studio Sattva’s Christmas Bazaar is back! The bazaar will have 90 stalls from all over India selling hand crafted products, garments, paintings, jewelry, footwear and delicious food.



Studio Sattva is holding its annual
Xmas Bazaar on the 11th and 12th of December. This time the bazaar will have master weavers of Pashmina from Kashmir, Folk artists from Bengal, Orissa and Thangka painters from the Tibetan settlements in Karnataka. Also on display will be textiles from Andhra, tribal crafts from Chhattisgarh and speciality crafts from Spiti valley (a remote corner of Himachal Pradesh). There will be hand printed children's books in French and English from Auroville and all sorts of hand-mades from all over India.



The Xmas Bazaar will be a total family event with food courts, a crafts corner for kids and performances by kids on both the days.  “The Xmas Bazaar will have 90 stalls from all over India selling hand crafted products, garments, paintings, jewelry, footwear and delicious food.  There will also be an Art corner for kids and Bingo sessions for the bored! There will be some performances in Classical Indian dances, carol singing and more,” says Devika Krishnan.



Studio Sattva was set up in 2007 by Asha Rao and Devika Krishnan with the intention of promoting quality handmade products in Bangalore. They source their ware directly from the manufacturer and know each of their 100 plus suppliers on a personal level. Sattva periodically holds exhibitions where they promote one of their artists. “It is our endeavor to build an equal platform for all by promoting their hand skills. This is an open event where anyone involved in producing anything handmade; including food stuff is welcome to participate. And it is free event for all those who wish to come and see all that we have to offer,” she says.
