Celebrating mass-produced, frugal, aesthetic design from india



  • What difference would it make if people were aware of Indian design?

India has been viewed from many angles, as an art form , a photographers muse , a cinematographers captive. We felt the dearth of a online platform to act as a database for Indian Designs.  This data can be cite or used as research material for the design community, students and professionals all over the world.

If people are aware of Indian Design, it will get its due on a global platform as do many designs from  other countries all over the world. The related industries, craftsmen can also get support through this awareness.

  • Is Design Mela only for designers?

NO, NOT AT ALL Design Mela is meant for all those who would love to see Indian Design getting the acknowledgement it deserves. We invite the people of our country to participate in this project with full gusto.
