WHO WE ARE - TheCraftSutra
We create artsy experiences where people can engage in a variety of art/craft forms, discover their own abilities and meet other art enthusiasts. We also curate art retreats at unique getaways which give individuals the time and space to create at their full capacity. A love of learning, art and travel together with skill development is what makes the CraftSutra an opportunity as well as a community for like-minded folks. We believe that anyone can create art and encourage people to participate in a myriad of interactive workshops.
ABOUT - NotOnMap
We believe in giving not just a home to stay but an entire village. NotOnMap destinations are not crafted but curated with and by local villagers who want travelers to witness the real hospitality in India. In today's era of commercial homestays, guest houses and expensive hotels, NotOnMap stays are authentic, genuine and allow you to live like locals, directly with the local people. A proud moment to share, NotOnMap has bagged the Best Start-Up in South East Asia Award by SATTE 2020.
