Home to majestic Himalayan views, verdant valleys, and glacial rivers, the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand, India is defined by both staggering natural beauty and extreme geographic isolation. The nearest city, Delhi, is over 460km away, and most villages are inaccessible via road. Yet despite the challenging landscape, many have retained rich traditions of traditional handicrafts. Today, as this region continues to develop and modernize, one organization is seeking to preserve these traditions to foster a new generation of artisans.
