"Kanvas aims to nurture the art of hand-painting, encourage people to value handicraft and traditional techniques of intricate design and spread joy through the verve of colours."
Our country has a rich heritage of art and design. Various forms of painting and textile art have flourished for a long time in India. At Kanvas, we believe that we need to protect these dying art forms. Without patronage, the artisans who work tirelessly to create these handicrafts feel disillusioned and prefer to discontinue their practice. They pursue other labours in order to earn a regular source of income. This is terrible news for such valuable, indigenous art-forms.
At Kanvas, our ambition is to revive these ethnic styles by transforming it into a contemporary forms. Some designs are digitalized to make it commercial. Our footwear is created by Indian artisans who give their time and effort into the making of each pair. We want to pursue and nurture Indian art so it thrives in new, enchanting forms.
Kanvas is an Indian brand, and proudly so.
