First of all thanks Lekshmi andTheBetterIndia for giving us this opportunity to showcase our work and also share our story - the story of the Adivasis caught in the crossfire between the state and the Naxalites - a subject of topical interest as well.
Devrai Art Village was born ten years ago with the idea of sustaining indigenous arts and crafts but one soon realised that the art could not be sustained without sustaining the artist. We take pride in creating livelihood options for tribal youth, both men and women by creating work which is aligned to their culture. The work here not only helps the artist earn a living but also gives them a sense of identity through pride in their work.
We do not want donations but give us work. Buy our creations!
