Check out this wonderful article in the New York Times. I attended the Indian Folk Art Market at the Asia Society mentioned in the article. Not only, did I get to see Kakuben Lalabhai Parmar, I got to interact with some of the artisans :)
As can be noticed here on the right side of the pic above, each of the stands had an explanation of the traditional indian art/craft that it represented.
Traditional methods like Kalamkari, we all know about, but there are some others that I came across that I'm going to chronicle here over a series of blog posts.
