Traditional Craft & Preserving a Legacy By Nisha Jamvwal

Yet fame and survival does not come easy to the craftsman whose lineage has managed to keep the art.

the vagaries of the centuries patronage of religion and rulers preserved and protected the art and the artist. But in present times, like so many other art forms that entails so much time and skill, this too is vulnerable and incline toward evanescence. Compromised techniques and work methods have crept in.

About Nisha By Nisha

I am an interior Architect and a columnist who established my brand in interior Design and then diversified into Fashion.

I am not a person who has lived my life to any preformatted rules. I am a prolific designer- the quintessential aesthete who has expressed my creativity in multiple forms.
My brand spans Interiors and Lifestyle along with Fashion- couture and prĂȘt and Art. I have written books and articles ,designed the Jaipore Airport Lounge, done a thirty six episode Television Show on Star One with celebrities entitled "Home Shanti Home' where I visited the homes of film actors and politicians and artists and chatted with them intertwining their homes into the conversation. Also a show called 'Meri Saheli' where I sat in a different space of a home and gave some highlights on DIY and refurbishment with a modest budget.
