CONNECTING ARTISANS TO DESIGNERS

Much has been written about the revival of traditional techniques in Indian textile creation – from their adaptation to please a modern Indian aesthetic to their embellishment for the international market.

DOES KHAZANA SELL ART OR CRAFTS? BY: CAROLYN FRIEDHOFF

If we’re being delicate, the distinction between a work of art and a craft is an issue of semantics. In truer terms, the distinction is xenophobic drivel. The term, “art,” is often used to describe creative work that is finished for its own sake.

WINTER WONDER BY: CAROLYN FRIEDHOFF

Winter days at Khazana are meditative. They are darker and quieter than sunny spring and fall days, when the windows open with the shop doors in the morning.

VENUS | THE PLANET OF TREASURE

A strong Venus in the birth chart creates individuals with great taste. A healthy Venusian native will be inclined towards great beauty and decadent objects, but interestingly enough their taste will be more natural at its core. Venus, when transmitting in its higher frequencies, would much prefer silk, hemp, wool and cotton over polyester, nylon and acrylic.

ASTROLOGY FORECAST FOR THE WINTER SEASON

Your birth chart is a map of the sky at the exact time you were born. Imagine you are carrying that map inside of you at all times – those planetary positions will never change for you. It is almost as if you have an entire solar system frozen within you.
