Benesh is a stunning piece of work that has been beautifully handcrafted by women artisans from Gujrati Lane. Each element of these bags is created by hand, and if you look at the detailing in them, you'll be mesmerised.
Right from the zardozi fabric that forms the front. The beaded centre which is one of the signature elements of Gujrati / Kutchi art forms. Around the beaded centre are the beautiful white beads that circle the centre. What we loved most about the piece are the stunning imitation antique coins that lace the bag, along with the clusters of coins that are found on the bag.
Bringing Gujrati Lane online has been a dream for us, for a very long time. When e finally could convince two lovely, kind and talented women artisans of the lane - Radha Didi & Hansa Didi - it meant making sure that a beautiful curation goes live as soon as possible! At JanpathOnline, it has been our dream to curate the best of each of India's stunning local bazaars.
