International Recognition for Our Arts & Crafts Initiative


Kudisai craftsmen were chosen to collaborate with a trio of world famous artists: Zandra Rhodes and Andrew Logan from England and Rajeev Sethi from India.

This team, together with Kudisai, created the Earth Banquet portion of the Basic Needs Pavilion at EXPO 2000 Hannover. The team created a harmony of cutting-edge and innovative designs of Western artists with age-old artistry of the Indian Sub-continent.

Appreciation from Zandra Rhodes

“The products of our collaboration – the carved chairs and screen, tent, cutlery, pottery etc. – turned out splendidly. This effort highlighted a unique and uniquely successful collaboration between an internationally noted designer and the extraordinary work of the traditional artisans of India”.

Appreciation from Rajeev Sethi

“The products the Kudisai has produced in the past are of extraordinary technical refinement and exceptional artistic delivery”.
