A brand that brings forth the craft of black pottery as jewellery to adorn oneself. As known locally, ‘Kabbish’ is a clay slip prepared by the craftsmen to add luster to the black pottery. Each piece is skillfully handcrafted by the potters of Azamgarh, with immense love, care, and attention to the details. It is our small initiative to revive the traditional forms of terracotta while acknowledging the unflinching efforts of the Indian potters to keep this tradition alive. Pottery is a collective process, involving generations dedicated to the craft. Each pot holds the impression (Sparsh/Sanskara) of the hands of the family who brings it to life. From process to packaging kabbish carries a glimpse of the Indian craft culture. It is an attempt to promote the craft of pottery and keep the tradition alive. Pottery is one of the languishing crafts of India. The process of making pottery is a collective process, involving generations dedicated to the craft that almost runs in their blood. Our brand with the concept of Pot Jewellery has been able to give recognition to the craft. The venture has provided a means of livelihood to the family of potters in Uttar Pradesh. Each piece of jewelry is designed with the utmost detail. The craftsmen are trained to skillfully handcraft the miniature pots, to give a new dimension to this heritage craft.
The objective of Kabbish is to support the indigenous crafts of India alongside black pottery. While the production of our jewelry supports the community of potters, the packaging engages block print and tie & dye artisans. We aim to add more elements of various crafts to black pottery.
