In the town of Sanganer, paper makers have a special name, Kaagzi. The paper they have been handcrafting from recycled textile remnants for ages was once used exclusively by the royal family for official work.
Instead of the royal family, the artisans now work for Craft Boat, a company seeking to infuse a vision of modernity with the virtues of the craft, and whose founder Priti describes the act of making in community as a profound expression of the joy of simple living.
Craft Boat works with women from conservative houses, who weave the cotton as gracefully as they weave a newfound balance between work and home life. Meanwhile, the company’s male artisans, many previously untrained, experience the deep gratification of making. Ali, a specialist in “paper structures,” fashions treasures like gift boxes, wedding cards, and paper lamps.
