Aagaz

Comprising of more than 60 members, Aagaz is a vibrant women artisan group giving wings to the creativity of rural women hailing from Hapur, Uttar Pradesh. Glass beaded jewellery and ornaments form the medium of their artistic expression as well as socio-economic upliftment. Various bead crafts have existed since pre-historic times, with each region, tribe and community having its own unique element. The glass bead bangles made by women of Aagaz are characterised by their intricate floral patterns. 

Throughout history, all genders have embraced and cherished different bead craft articles but they have always held more significance for women. From mere display of their skillset to reflecting their beliefs, representing their taste and aesthetic sense, and defining their social stature, these haven’t just been simple pieces of ornamentation. Even for the women artisans working at Aagaz, their craft isn’t just a means of earning their livelihood. It fills them with pride to be able to take forward their cultural and artisanal heritage. Their greatest reward is the praise their work garners in urban markets. They hope as their reach expands, so does the appreciation for their skills and creativity, which ultimately helps them lead a better life through their craft.
