About Sandur Kushala Kala Kendra
The centre has been training tribal women from Sandur and nearby villages in the traditional craft of Lambani Embroidery using mirrors and vibrant colours.
The Kushala Kala Kendra assists the Banjara tribe in design development and marketing to keep their traditional needle craft alive. SKKK believes in encouraging the revival of indigenous crafts by ensuring a better life for the people who make them, by finding new markets and also making the crafts more relevant to modern tastes.
Traditionally this embroidery was done on personal items of girls to be married. It was done elaborately on different household accessories that went into the bride’s trousseau. The traditional costume of the Lambadi woman glitters with small pieces mirror, coins, shells and costume jewelry.
