We have expanded our scope to include documentation on craft traditions in the larger South Asian region, a decision influenced by the constant realization that cultural heritage and tradition in South Asia transcend contemporary political boundaries. We hope to create a context that encompasses the larger geographic and cultural region of which we are a part. This has been undertaken in collaboration with UNESCO, which has provided funding and support.
The countries included under the grouping 'South Asia' are Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka contain a multi-layered collage of traditions and cultures. The Craft Revival Trust documentation concentrates on a particular aspect of this tradition, that is, the crafts and textiles within each entity. We have attempted as exhaustive a survey as was possible for us; however the information is far from 'complete' or 'comprehensive'.
We hope to continuously add to the documentation, thus increasing the information base, and enhancing the depth and relevance of the site. Do email in your feedback.
