Crewel Embroidery Sling Bags

Embroidered Bags from iTokri

When we were younger, our parents used to engage us in arts and crafts to contain our excitement and, to be honest, destructive urges. Before the Internet, many children's favourite pastimes were drawing or making crafts out of household materials. Parents are now more conscious of the risks of the Internet for children and are attempting to resurrect the days of crafts. However, this time, eco-friendly and compostable materials were used to ensure that the environment was not affected.

Since the beginning of time, India has been a hub for tradition and cultural legacy, and one of these histories and cultures is handicrafts. Billions of skilled artisans across India continued to use sustainable materials to create handcrafts such as souvenirs, decorative objects, and everyday essentials. By providing you with all these sustainable handicrafts, iTokri is dedicated to safeguarding Indian heritage.
