Handicrafts exhibition for ‘Bengali New Year’

Handicraft exhibition in Kolkata-Anjana BasuKolkata, Apr 5 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): With ‘Poila Boishak’ (Bengali New Year) round the corner, Craft Council of West Bengal (CCWB), a non-profit organization working for art and culture, has started a handicrafts exhibition-cum sale-with at Artisana store in south Kolkata.
Inaugurating the exhibition, ‘Bye Bye Bangkok’ actress Anjana Basu said: “CCWB’s collection is so attractive and amazing that I have collected almost 80 percent of their things for my personal use in last few years.”

“This year also I plan to empty my purse while I get back home from here,” she said.

She said over the last few years she has been a regular to the exhibition, but ‘always came little late’. And hence, she didn’t get to see the full range of crafts on display.

“This year luckily I got the opportunity to be here at the first day itself and I am very excited for that,” the actor said.

One of the product manufacturers and ornamentalist by profession, Manas Gharai, whose items are being displayed, said: “This year’ is significant to me as I have launched a special type of collection named as Pathachitra. It is a combination of real ‘pathacharita’ along with silver and various stones to give it a contemporary look.”

Other than exclusive collections, the exhibition-cum-sale offers customers a wide range of daily-use items, like saree, lifestyle materials, jute bags and leather bags.

The exhibition will be over on April 9.
