Seeing the hardships faced by the craftsman and the meager living earned from their labors, Rajiv was inspired to help keep the craft alive by selling the products abroad. Initially the group included only two to three artisans, but over time has increased to over 250 members. Sometimes unable to maintain sufficient work for full time employment, the artisans were sometimes forced to change their profession. Mela Artisans and similar groups are working to improve demand for these products, which has created more consistent work and therefore a more stable livelihood for the artisans and their families. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.overstock.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi?SEC_IID=12756&amp;PAGE=STATICPAGE&amp;PAGE_ID=2432" target="_blank"><span class="links">What is Worldstock?</span></a> <br /> <br /> <i>The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
