The Art of Gift Giving:
Tania Clay Studio believes and takes pride in creating artifacts that are all of the above and Eco-friendly and Sustainable. We are constantly working towards using naturally available raw materials from all over India for our creations. Exquisitely handcrafted with organic materials, each creation reflects silent beauty and unbendable strength of nature. Our gift boxes have a story to tell.
We currently offer three kinds of gift boxes made of natural fibres found in coastal areas of Chennai and Orissa.
Palm Leaf – Thunder palm leaf which is required for making this box is derived from the palm tree that is ivory in colour. They are naturally dyed after splitting and drying.
Kora grass is grown along the river banks of Chennai. Even though the process of creating things from them is quite complex and pain staking, they are extremely reliable.They come in natural colors but can be easily dyed to various colors for festivities.
Golden grass – These are locally called ‘kaincha’ and are grown in swampy areas during rainy season. They are light, durable and naturally golden with no use of dyes. They are found in Orissa and are grown without chemicals or pesticides.These were traditionally used for making mats .
Joy in looking and comprehending is nature’s most beautiful gift- Albert Einstein.
Behind the Scenes:
Women artisans skillfully hand weave these sustainable natural fibres into beautiful boxes. We have directly approached and adopted villages in Chennai and Orissa to revive this dying art form. The craft is a good source of livelihood for the rural women artisans. We have been trying to revive the art by training young girls who are forced into marriage early, to have a skill set they can use for financial freedom in the future.
Thanks to like minded people and organizations, we are able to promote the art form and empower women here.
