About us

About us 

Tamaala is founded by Suvarna Kamakshi ( a professional artist ) and Vinay Prashant ( a management professional).At Tamaala we believe that Art can transcend barriers and be made more accessible to consumers and connoisseurs.

Our objective is to generate employment among skilled artisans, facilitate co-creation between visual artists & artisans, act as a marketing platform for indigenous art and craft and generate awareness about these native art forms. Eventually, we would like to create an incubation centre for innovation in indigenous art. 

We at present work with 150 + rural artisans from 15 out of 72 regions of Geographical Indication in India. Overall we are engaging with artisans from 39 craft & art clusters. Post Covid 19 our effort has been to maximise income for the rural & tribal artisans using design, our TMAP ( Terracotta Mobile Amplifier Project ) project is one such attempt. 

We facilitate co-creation, through design discussions between artists & artisans.

We conduct workshops with artisans to build empathy and enable art appreciation among urban populace. We market the handicrafts as corporate gifting solutions. We have an art space located in J P Nagar, South Bangalore, which not only serves as a retail space but facilitates discussions & workshops.

Gifting – for all occasions

Tamaala creations serve several gifting occasions. From a corporate event to a marriage to a house warming, our rural artisans creations create the right magic through their centuries old art and craft forms.

The Nature of Handmade

The are a couple of aspects one needs to note before purchasing a handmade product. Minor blemishes are part of the creation, and no handmade product can be uniform – in fact no two will ever be the same.

Custom made

We undertake custom made projects which may be designed by us and created by our rural artisans. We have done so successfully for a few international clients in wood & clay.

What Our Customers Says ?

I would like to appreciate the effort taken by you guys to convert that beautiful art into another gorgeous
piece of merchandise. I was thoroughly impressed by the clocks and the data banks customised
specially for us for gifting purposes by Tamaala. Tamaala has proven yet another ideology that art
transcends all barriers and conventions and can make it in any form in every nook and corner of a
humble abode. I wish Tamaala the very best and hope to see it growing and redefining the
concepts of art and designing.

Beautiful creations.. Amazing in every way including the pricing. India in a shop. The social cause behind it makes it invaluable.Thanks for all the effort behind the endeavour!

Tamaala vision of shining a bright light on our indigenous visual arts across the country while also helping our artisans earn a healthy livelihood doing what what they love the most. Suvarna and Vinay are amazing torch bearers of two above vision. They work tirelessly and give much more than they take. I wish Tamaala all success to grow from strength to strength.

In my view ‘CREATIVITY’ is an integral part of all activities we embark, not restricted to creating few art artefacts. This is possible only when there is a constant engagement with ART & most importantly ARTISANS. TAMAALA uniquely identified this arena of bringing artisans forefront along with their art to urban consumers. I’ve been interacting with them for more than a year & seen their tremendous work in indigenous art forms of India. Their studio is hub for seeing unique art pieces, to meet artisans and even participate in workshops! Suvarna & Vinay at Tamaala are wonderful people to meet & hear their passion of creating sustainable livelihoods. Wishing them a fulfilling artistic journey!

Being an architect have been concerned about the the regressing and disappearing art forms of India in this connection I am extremely happy to see the social enterprise of sustaining art and craft through the artisans of various villages of India taken up by TAMAALA – which indeed is a very noble task. Tamaala is synergizing the artisans and the corporate world, by creating a culture of gifting of ‘art forms’, as also re energizing the link between art and interior design. The efforts of Tamaala in giving livelihood to artisans and reviving the dying arts and crafts of India is tremendous ! Kudos and congratulations Tamaala – Hats off to Shri Vinay Prashant and Smt. Suvarna !
