India: Stone Carvers of Agra
On the banks of the Yamuna River lies a bustling city, Agra, known for its rich Indian history, remarkably, the Tāj Mahal. Within its borders, a small artisan group has banded together to better their lives. After seeing their mothers and father labor in their craft with little to no reward, they wanted to make a change; to honor their parents and change the course of the children’s future. And with that mission they started the Carvers of Agra.
Using traditional methods, the artisans hand craft wood, stone, and marble pieces using the same material once sourced for the Tāj Mahal itself! Each piece is imbued with love and a beautiful Indian history.
