About Saumit Ethnics

It so happened that my husband brought a ladies leather bag for me from Switzerland. It was plain black bag. I thought – how nice it would look with some designs to fill the empty places on the bag.

I had always been fascinated by the richness of designs from tribal India and tried painting some of them on it. My husband was very impressed with my work and suggested me – Why don’t you take this as a profession and share your art with the world?

That was the turning point in my life.

It was exciting to imagine myself painting bags and showcasing Indian ethnic and tribal designs to the world. But there was a lot of research to be done before I could start. I had to hunt for places from where I could procure bags that suit my requirements, experiment for leather-compatible colors and look for designs from ethnic India. I traveled a thousand of kilometers in villages to find designs.

I started painting bags and selling them online. At the same time, I started painting on various things and that's how I started making Wooden Name Plates, too. I never imagined that I would get such a good response. This encouraged me a lot and I started taking more interest in this. I participated in an exhibition and got lots of appreciations. I never imagined that someone would ever take my interview and publish it. I found my pictures with my bags on several newspapers.
