Originated in the state of Andhra Pradesh, Leather (Tholu) Puppetry is believed to have been exercised since the 12th century. In olden times, colorful leather puppets were created to perform shadow puppet shows and mostly consisted of characters from Ramayana and Mahabharatha. Because of the translucent nature of the material, lighted puppets would glow in the dark emitting vivid colors, attracting more and more audiences to the show. Puppetry is still practiced in many parts of India, performed during special occasions or festivals like Diwali.  With time, the art form has changed to include leather puppetry lamps and jewelry which like olden times are truly magnificent to look at and impart a cultural significance to the owner.

A lamp is a must for every home. An elegant lamp can add a touch of sophisticated beauty to your personal space. The India Craft Project believes in creating experiences through crafts. So, we bring to you our ‘Kalki’ Tholu wall lamp that’ll not only lighten up your room but your moods as well!
