Khamir Craft Resource Centre was set up in the aftermath of the Gujurat earthquake in 2002 to promote long term sustainable economic and cultural development around Kutch. Khamir was initiated by the Kachchh Nav Nirman Abhiyan (KNNA) and the Nehru Foundation for Development (NFD). Khamir have been instrumental in reviving traditional Kutch crafts such as ajrakh block printing, tie dye, weaving, lacquer, bell making, as well as silver and leather work as viable sources of income for artisan communities. The Centre provides a space of artisans to develop business skills, build capacity, exchange knowledge and strengthen culture.
