Who are we?

‘I-N-D-I-A’, these five letters describe a vibrant amalgamation of diverse cultures, traditions and creative expression. The letters not only form the name of a country, but depict an emotion:  an emotion of a pride that comes with being a part of ‘INDIA’.

Boasting of a history adorned with a rich heritage of creativity and ingenuity, the strength of India’s artistic diversification can still be felt in different walks of life. India was the land where the golden bird of prosperity spread it wings widely, once upon a time.

The advent of urbanization, however, caused traditional art to take a backseat and rendered its creators wingless. A glorious combination of cultural creativity and innovation fought hard to keep its flame alive against the strong winds of modernization.

But, being the emotion that ‘India’ is, it could not be suppressed for too long. This poignant emotional connect gave birth to an idea, a spark: the spark that ignited the idea named ‘Lal10’.

We are a young team of artists, designers, poets, photographers, engineers and social workers, who are passionate towards reviving the traditional creative art forms of India. We merge the artistic skills and talents of the artisans with modern marketing techniques, thus making these effervescent and elaborate crafts easily available to each and every person. Through this, we concurrently fulfill the deep-rooted mission of bestowing the brilliantly talented artisans and creators with the respect and recognition that they rightfully deserve.
