Bengal has been the seat of excellence for traditional art and culture from the time of the Mauryan Empire, over 3000 years ago. The state is an example of cultural fusion having a strong influence of Sino-Tibetan culture in the north, Santhali tribal culture in the west and the eclectic Bengali culture of the state capital Kolkata which is infused with colonial British influence.
Luxe Living has been actively working with the grass root level artisans in the far flung districts of Bengal .Each product line at our studio has a story to tell. Be it the Potochitro drawings on innocuous items of everyday use like umbrellas , lamps , boxes and clothing etc to Kantha embroidery of various descends on textile of every form , Batik hand painting on cloth and leather , Handmade paper products by the destitute youth of Kolkata to the Sitalpati mats of Cooch Behar and Midnapore ! We nurture the clusters to produce articles that are specifically designed in-house to showcase the community ethnic cultures yet presented in a manner to suit the modern mindsets and design setups of the 21st century. This amalgamation of craft, culture, style and form can be attributed to the organization’s experience in Interior Architecture for over 2 decades.
