Antaran- Transforming Crafts

An initiative by Tata Trusts to bring seminal changes in craft development, beginning with the Handloom sector, designed to transform traditional crafts through a multidimensional approach for technical, design, enterprise and market development interventions to strengthen craft based livelihoods.

Antaran creates awareness about rich heritage of Indian handloom and handicrafts, bring due recognition and returns to traditional artisans for their unique skills through a five-year program through Incubation & Design Centres for handloom development in select lesser known clusters of Assam, Nagaland, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. These Centres works as education and business development hubs for artisans, enabling them to be designer-weavers and build a community of micro-entrepreneurs across the handloom value chain in each region.
