Cauvery Emporium : A Treasure Trove of the Timeless Ageless Handicrafts Wealth of Karnataka in India

India is one of the oldest civilizations in the the world. This ancient country’s vast cultural and ethnic diversity is brilliantly depicted in its mind boggling range of mesmerizing handicrafts.

Indian handicrafts are in great demand all over the world for their exquisite beauty, intricate, artistic work & unimitable elegance.

Cauvery Emporium of Karnataka in India, markets the beautiful handicrafts of Karnataka under its brand name 'Cauvery' through outlets scattered across the country. The extraordinarily high standard of craftsmanship maintained by this emporium, has made the name 'Cauvery' synonymous with brilliantly crafted handicrafts.

The state of Karnataka in South India, is known all over the world, for its handicraft industry and its unique, traditional masterpieces, made from a variety of materials, like Rosewood, Shivaniwood, Sandalwood etc with intricate traditional designs and time-tested techniques. 

The dense dark forests of Karnataka, rich in flora and fauna, have been an inspiration for a variety of handicrafts, since centuries. The Sandalwood, Rosewood & Shivaniwood, grown in abundance in Karnataka, have led to the ageless legacy of exquisite Sandalwood carvings and intricate Rosewood inlay work. Age-old traditions have been kept alive, since time immemorial, by passing on jealously guarded techniques from generation to generation of Master Craftsmen. However, the onslaught of modernization has sidelined these brilliant craftsmen due to their lack of exposure to the changes of modern times.

To ensure that the State’s rich tradition of exquisite craftsmanship is ever preserved, developed and promoted, Cauvery Emporium, has taken up countless initiatives & is tirelessly working in the field in the most  relentless way, for the true upliftment of the brilliant artisans & for the beautiful artform not becoming extinct from the surface of this ancient land.
