Picnic Folk was born from a desire to find reusable, durable and colorful kitchen/picnic wares in a market that we felt was lacking.
Each of our wares are hand-painted in Kashmir by an older-generation of incredibly talented and traditional artists. Our artists work from the comfort of their own homes, allowing for flexibility and having been in business for 126 years they offer multi-generational employment, keeping the traditions close to their hearts.
We work closely and keep in regular contact with our suppliers in Kashmir and are proud to know that each purchase helps to preserve what is an otherwise dying art. Not to mention supporting the lives of those in a very unstable political environment.
