Started by three Bar­oda- based artists— Gu­lam Mo­hammed Sheikh, Vi­jay Bagodi and Kavita Shah— this non- profit or­gan­i­sa­tion cre­ates aware­ness about the tra­di­tional way of print­ing and its tech­niques. Here you will find works of artists like Nagji Pa­tel, Jy­oti Bhatt, Paula Sengupta, Suren­dran Nair and Helene Baribeau.

And what makes them unique is that one block which car­ries one de­sign and is used no more than 10 times. Ev­ery piece of art is made with 100 per­cent acid free pa­per.
