    Dastkar Ranthambore Case Study This case study examines Dastkar Ranthambore, a craft enterprise located in Rajasthan, India, and looks at how strategic design innovation can bridge the gap between traditional artisans and mainstream markets, and impact business growth.

    Background In 2006, the All India Artisans and Craftworker’s Welfare Association (AIACA), based in New Delhi, and the international NGO, Aid to Artisans (ATA), began a three year public-private partnership to implement the Artisan Enterprise Development Alliance Program (AEDAP) in India. Most handicrafts created by Indian artisans are made with the intention of being sold commercially, yet many remain unable to reach the market. The aim of AEDAP was therefore to support Indian artisan enterprises to become more competitive in the market. The objective of the program was to leverage skills and expertise; to bring human, material and financial resources to bear on addressing various challenges throughout the supply chain related to Indian craft production and marketing.

    The Design Intervention The term ‘design intervention’ has been widely adopted to describe the process of linking designers to craft enterprises. The concept is that the designer will bring a new approach, or a different way of seeing artisanal skills and expertise, and share their design capabilities and understanding of global market demands. The designer does not impose but rather ‘unlocks’ the potential of the existing skill by tweak...

    'Where else would I get such information? I've always embroidered but never had a chance to learn.' - Graduate, artisan & designer, Kuverben.

    Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya design school opened its doors in 2005. The environment, curriculum and methodology of this unique educational institution are designed to be appropriate for traditional artisans, and is intended as a model with a new approach to the rejuvenation of traditional arts. It is open to working artisans of Kutch, conservatively estimated at 50,000. The focus of the school is on acquiring knowledge and skills that can be directly applied in the artisan’s own art to enable innovation appropriate to contemporary markets.

    Working artisans rarely have the luxury of leaving their home and profession for long periods of time. Therefore, the curriculum is designed as a series of workshops which are conducted over a period of one year in a residential local setting.

    Kala Raksha has well established links with premier Indian design institutions, including the National Institution of Design (NID), the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Srishti Design Institute, and the Indian Institute of Crafts & Design (IICD). Faculty from NID and NIFT are advisors in establishing Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya. In addition, Project Director Judy Frater mobilized a team including faculty from the Fashion Institute of Technology, NY, and the Rhode Island School of Design to develop the basic curriculum for Kala Raksha Vidhy...
