P-TAL aims at reviving the dying craft form of the indigenous Thatheras community of Jandiala Guru, Amritsar. The Thatheras of Jandiala Guru are a community of skilled craftsmen who specialize in the traditional technique of making hand crafted brass, copper and bell metal utensils by hammering metal sheets. This unique craft of the Thateras of Jandiala Guru in Amritsar is the first craft of India to be inscribed in the UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2014. Like the Thatheras, P-TAL is an epitomy of making tradition a trend, preserving legacy through legal entity converting practice into perfection thus moulding the vessels of hope!
P-TAL aims to revive the dying crafts of the Amritsar indigenous Thatheras community, which is characterized by practicing the only UNESCO-registered crafts in India. Jandiala Guru's Thatheras is a community of skilled craftsmen who specialize in the traditional techniques of driving brass and copper sheets into traditional tools. This craft colony of Jandiala Guru was founded during the reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1883), a great Sikh monarch of the 19th century. He encouraged skilled Kashmir artisans to settle in the center of the Punjab kingdom. P-TAL aims to revitalize the debilitated crafts of Thateras throughout India through three approaches: the institutionalization of craftsmen, design development and education, and access to the market with the latest technology.
