By employing a unique method of paper cutting and curling, she adds layers of texture and sculptural form to her hand drawn art and this is how these beautiful creations are made.

Gunjan is a certified paper artist . According to Gunjan “I developed this method of using paper after spending a long time exploring paper sculptures. This process stuck because of the rich detail it adds to my ideas and forms.”

Her awesome paper artwork is available for sale at Saatchi

Alert : New Look of Our Website

Hello there!

Happy New Year to all of you 🙂

Yes, we admit…We admit that we change our website too often and this is one of those times when we announce the new look of our website.

Despite of the last re-do of our website, we realized that it was still pretty slow and we decided it is the time to move when we started receiving complaints from the customers about orders not going through, website too slow to operate etc.

So we analyzed many service providers and finally moved to a better and faster platform to serve you better.

Now DesiCrafts website is:

Faster – The website load time has decreased wonderfully and thanks to CDNs we are able to deliver you our content faster, no matter what is your location on this earth {pretty awesome, we know :D}

Smoother – New platform ensures that while you place an order, it goes smoothly and the registration process is easy for you.

Interactive – Now we have made it even more easier for you to share your favorite products with your friends and family. On each product page, you get ‘Pin it’, ‘Facebook like’, ‘Tweet’, and ‘Google+’ button for easy sharing. The website works really nice on iPad, iPhone and Android devices.

Blog – Yes, this time we have integrated a Desi blog too! Now its easy to get on the Desi Bandwagon – join our blog here http://www.desicraftshop.com/blogs/desicrafts , comment and share the DIY and awesome blog pieces.

So, the work is still on and here is a sneak-peek of what we’ve been up to. We’ll be adding a wide range of products very soon. Keep visiting, surprise yourself!
