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.”

Staircase Decoration at a Fabric Manufacturing Unit


We noticed this beautiful wall decoration at a fabric manufacturing unit. The company has square fabric pieces framed nicely arranged on the wall of staircases. All these frames display fabrics from different parts of India and include Banaras Pure Silk, Chanderi from Madhya Pradesh, Jacquard from Delhi and Cotton Block Prints from Jaipur.

Spring green pillow cover – Made of Organic Cotton Fabric


Can’t wait to share this lovely pillow cover. This is made using Ghada fabric ( a type of unbleached, organic cotton fabric in thick texture) This fabric is widely used in making Kalamkari prints and we decided to make some block print pillows using this for a simple reason – the fabric looks awesome and it is organic. If you remember an old post about Fabric Block Printing on DesiCrafts blog, you will find this motif very familiar 🙂
