Artisana

Arts & Crafts in Kolkata (Calcutta)

Run by an NGO that has a long association with Bengal's folk-art communities, this understated showroom stocks interesting art objects that make for excellent collectibles. Look for the occult Gombhira dance masks from North Bengal, or elaborate terracotta figurines of the snake goddess Manasa. There's some exquisite textiles available too, although stocks can vary depending on supply.
