If you ask me what is that I love most about Rustic Motifs , I will say, the bit where we get to travel, to meet and interact with all kinds of people.
Sometimes as part of our handpicked section, we visit old godowns and warehouses in nondescript towns, most unlikeliest of places to find beautiful handmade creations, treasures hidden under years of dust, mostly forgotten, in the race to provide sleek and shiny more prefect machine made versions. Each of these pieces we hunt down, help us travel back in time, a time when art was yet to be invaded by the need to prove itself by the money it could fetch. A time when the passion to create something unique, something that would last for centuries and treasured was more important.
Each rare, each a manifestation of our belief, that if we don’t save our handmade industry from the eventual doom in the name of progress and modernisation, the generations ahead will never know what it is to create something that is soulful and made with passion.
Today, we have places we can travel to dig out such products and people crazy enough make the journey, tomorrow if we don’t reach out to them and show them we care, who knows they may cease to exist…
Some unique products we found on few such travels 🙂 Watch out this space and we will share our latest finds, very soon!
