In 1996, eight master craftsmen from all over India met with Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay and Roshan Kalapesi to form Paramparik Karigar with the mission to preserve and promote the traditional art and craft of our country, as well as to strive to create an environment conducive for the craftsmen to create their exquisite pieces of art. The key initiatives they had in mind were:
- To bring handmade Crafts directly from craftsmen to the consumers and to preserve and promote traditional art and craft of India.
- To raise awareness and understanding of craft so that works of master craftsmen are recognised as art forms.
- To assist craftsmen in improving their skills by conducting technical, design and marketing workshops.
- To ensure sustainability of craft by conducting workshops for children of craftsmen and other school children.
- To Create awareness among people of Traditional Handicrafts through various means including workshops, lectures and seminars.
- Provide the opportunity to craftsmen from all over the country to bring their craft to the forefront through exhibitions.
- Maintain quality in craft produced by member craftsmen

Paramparik Karigar is an organisation of craftsmen, working to preserve and promote the traditional arts and crafts of India. Those craftsmen are usually taken as members whose family has been practising the craft from a few generations . During our annual exhibition in Mumbai the craftsmen conduct workshops in school and colleges and also for the public at the Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sanghralaya. You can attend those workshops. They are conducted by our master craftsmen.
