"Bringing Traditional Design Techniques to Modern Living"
TerraKlay is a Chicago-based artisanal lifestyle brand specializing in handmade home goods and decor. We connect traditional beauty with the modern world.
With a formal background in Fine Arts, I’ve worked with folk and tribal artist communities in rural India for over a decade bringing extensive understanding of indigenous arts and crafts. I launched TerraKlay in 2016 by featuring beautiful handmade black clay pottery, a traditional craft of artisan communities of Manipur, India. The idea behind the venture was to create more meaningful opportunities for women artisans who have been working in their craft for generations. And now we are expanding our reach to bring you more crafted products beyond pottery.
During my time with TerraKlay I've met many inspiring craftspeople that have rich and diverse traditional practices. Year 2020 created opportunities to evolve and reflect on building resilience for the artisan community. I’ve committed to collaborating with select groups to curate a collection of beautiful things for the home--items that are still “TerraKlay” simple, enjoyable and responsible. -Manvee
