More than being a brand endorsing high-quality handmade products, Tarkaashi aspires to be a storyteller of the interesting tales about centuries-old art and craft practices (Explore our blogs to know more). Based out of Cardiff, UK, our core values lie in working with traditional livelihoods and designing bespoke products to suit contemporary decor, using ancient craft techniques.
Inspired by India, all our products are handmade with techniques originated hundreds of years ago and passed onto generations, they are designed to promote traditional art & craft so it can thrive and become useful for the modern contemporary living. For instance, all our marble products are made by artisans whose ancestors once worked for the magnificent Taj Mahal, 400 years ago.
We at Tarkaashi believe that the delightful charm of slight imperfections in a handmade product can never be felt by a machine-made product. We love rendering traditional art techniques with clean lines and subtle colors and hope you like what we do!
