Indian art has been recognised all over the world for a long time. Every tourist who has visited the land has remembered it for its rich culture and art.

The Indian Handicrafts (IHE) Emporium for 49 years has reached out to the world with authentic Indian handicraft products.  The Indian Handicrafts Emporium specialises in handicraft carvings on Sandalwood (the natural fragrance wood), Rose and Ebony wood, Brass Art, Inlaid Marble Art and Hand-Knotted- Carpets. The Emporium also showcases a beautiful and authentic collection of paintings and Jewellery with Precious and Semi-Precious stones.

The IHE has put out the Indian art to the people of free India. The artists who made these artefacts found a good demand for their art and they could earn a living better than what they did before. A number of dying arts had come to life because of such emporiums and a lot of unknown Indian art forms have been discovered like the Madhubani paintings.


In the year 1966 the Indian Handicrafts Emporium was established. His Excellency Dr. Zakir Hussain, the then president of India had inaugurated it with his own hands. Since then, the Emporium had been one of the top windows of Indian handicrafts. Time and again many honorary people including head of states, royal families and foreign dignitaries. People like, Mrs. Indira Gandhi the then Prime Minister of India, His Royal Highness King of Spain with his Queen, Her Imperial Majesty Fara Diba Queen of Iran, President and Madame Tito of Yugoslavia, Mrs. Raisa Gorbachev of U.S.S.R and His Royal Highness Rangiran Isteki Hajah Mariam Queen of Brunei have all visited the emporium.

Thus the IHE has been the pride of India in showcasing its art. It is because of the IHE and other similar emporiums that the exhibition of our national art happens to such dignitaries and the national pride is boosted.
