Hello! I am Rekha Chellappa, an MBA graduate and a former corporate person, and I have had a diversified career path. I was a School Principal who later entered the financial sector, as a consultant for an NGO. Art has been a passion from my college days. I am a creative artist with expertise in crocheting, handweaving bags, purses, cushion and pillow covers, jewelry making, and handweaving dresses for young kids. I was excited when I got an opportunity to become an advisor for Decora India’s initiative for encouraging Arts and Crafts at a global level. I enjoy sharing my experiences in attending Arts and Crafts festivals, describing the cultures and traditional festivals celebrated in India, the various arts prominent in different parts of India etc. I also identify craft organizations, fair trade groups, artisan communities that can be tapped to make this initiative a success.
