Talking of Indian artisans- and I am so glad so many of you found yesterday's NYTimes story awe-inspiring- here is an organization, Tilonia that supports Indian artisans and sells handmade products like block prints and bandhej to name just a few. Tilonia is a village in Rajasthan and is the home of the Barefoot College, a college that aims to improve the lives of people in rural communities. The Barefoot College is now operational in many other countries. Browse (and shop- its for a good cause!) their website here.
