Artist Interviews

An Artist Shobhit Tailor

Handicrafts are unique expressions and represent a culture, tradition and heritage of a country. Handicraft is about processing materials by hand with hand tools. The results can be helpful things or decorative things.

Artist Shobhit Tailor, the founder of DS Handicrafts, set up in the scenic city of Ajmer besides various forts and museums, started his journey as an artisan by doing small trading jobs. Within a time, span of one year he has expanded his trading business by manufacturing marble, wooden, polyresine handicraft products.

As every artist he started with keeping no profit margins, worked over time, paying extra for raw materials but despite all this he kept his faith and believed in his passion for handicraft. He has adapted all the modern advertising platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp and E-commerce.

The government of India, every year comes up with schemes to promote Art&culture and manufacturing in India. But these schemes fail to reach the beneficiaries. Artists like Divyan, are still unaware of all the subsidies provided by the government. And despite being aware of some schemes he has not got into the complex process of joining hands with the government. This sure is a common trait seen with the public of India.

Being the ground-to-Earth person that he is, he states that he has not achieved all the expected success from this industry. He wants to reach out to all those Handicraft lovers and give them a taste of The Rajasthani Craft. We believe his love and passion will pave his way to great success one day.!!
