Make a Difference: Support Local Craft
The painters of Raghurajpur comprise a long lineage of artists specialising in a unique painting style known as ‘patachitra’. Despite faded patronage, artists continue to maintain valuable traditions and technique relying solely on their craft for the families’ income. Grass Routes encourages you to purchase directly from local artists. Enjoy the ancient art of bargaining; have fun with it and keep things in perspective. Not only can you encourage a unique local art form, but also give confidence to a struggling artisan community and walk away with a beautiful painting to boot!
