With such a great studio, responsibilities bring challenges too. According to them,
“To make the client understand the design cost along with the cost of skilled artistry in a cosmopolitan city as compared to a metropolitan city is a little challenging. However, things are getting better with the changing times.
As we work on trying to cater to the modern requirement of the people through their traditional mind-set. The story goes other way round as well, the artisans and craftsmen have only worked on traditional designs so to train them to work on modern designs using their skills so that they can come at pace with the ever-evolving markets.”
They viewed about their challenging and the unique product as,
“As every product that we create is unique to itself, it is always a challenge. However, JEWEL is one of our sofa’s that was a challenge as the artisan along with the designers had to put in their continuous effort so as to make sure the design is created as per the design keeping the originality of the design. The design has multiple leaf patterns created on the backrest and these are independent of each other. Adding to the beauty of the design are the hand carved armrests. The rear of the sofa has exposed teak wood done with invisible flawless joints. It is truly a piece of art created by the designers and craftsmen.”
