Kashmir is the source of so many craft products that for a Kashmiri, it’s a form of expression that’s closely connected to their history and identity. For the artisans of Kashmir, their craft is so much more than just a source of income – it is how they share the beauty of their home with the world.  These crafts - and the stories that come with them - form the foundation of each Zaina by CtoK product. Each one is a celebration of the unique and longstanding tradition of Kashmiri design.

The artisans we work with are skilled in a variety of crafts - papier mache, namda, carpet weaving, pashmina & kaani weaving, walnut wood, wicker, crewel & chain stitch, ari, sozni and tilla embroideries.
