Paramparik Karigar an association of craftsmen was founded in 1996 with the assistance of Roshan Kalapesi. The idea was rooted by Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay when she was approached by a group of master craftsmen who wanted to form an organisation of their own.
In the new era of technology, industrialisation and modernisation we have overlooked our rich heritage and tradition of art and craft, our nation's pride and assets.
The principle aim of Paramparik Karigar is to preserve and promote traditional art and craft of India . To ensure that craftsmen continue to create their craft, earn a sustainable income and encourage their children to continue the tradition by passing it on to them and ensure their skills stay relevant and alive.
