intervention. It is based on a human centric approach of wellbeing and economic growth of the local craft community
of Syntein village in Meghalaya by a strategic intervention of design and development, production optimization
and enterprise modeling of contemporary bamboo products that meet life style aspirations for urban users.
Decentralized and distributed centers of production of home-based enterprises are brought under a unique
brand identity that tap into the potential of diverse craft and handloom traditions unique to the region.
The proposed model offers potential of expansion across other handicraft and handloom traditions that are reflected
across India.
