ARTIST’S STORY:
Anil Khandelwal is from the vibrant state of Rajasthan in India. After school, he went to work on the railways. When a fellow artist introduced him to textile work, he knew this is what he was meant to do. Now, he is a leader in his community. "We work with many women artisans who specialize in hand embroidery, mirror work and patchwork, as well as in dori (cord) work. All together we work with many artisans in various villages, and it makes me very proud to be able to help artisans by providing them with work."
