Manohar Lal ji
Manohar Lal ji , If it was not for him we would have never started this journey of P-TAL. Three years ago, we still remember, in the entire village he was the only one who believed in his craft, not even his son was ready to believe that this old age legacy could revive again. He truely is the torch-bearer of karigar ki virasat (Legacy of Artisans). The pride for his craft legacy and the skill he posesses makes him one of our Master Artisans.
Gaurav kumar, he was only 24 when he started working with P-TAL. We have not come across anybody with that high skill in such a young age, when we inquired about his skill, we realised that he inherited it from his father. At 27 years of age, he is our second Master Artisan with a very high skill and enthusiasm. He was working in a factory, when we started a craft revival initiative in the village, but neverthless he returned back to the craft because of better incentives and he is an artisan entreprenuer.
Hari Kishan Suri/ Babba ji
Hari Kishan Suri/ Babba ji, he is our copper artisan, we would call him that because when we started working in the village he was one of the few artisans who we usually saw working with copper and was ready to experiment with the designs of copper. His creation of water dispenser is one of our hot selling product.
Gurucharan ji, the only kansa artisan family currently active in the village. Kansa is an alloy of copper and tin and one of the most healthy but difficult metal to work with, it can only be moulded when hot and since the raw material is made by artisans themselves, it is a very difficult craft to learn, if not inherited.
Harwinder Singh Ji
When you begin to revive a craft there is an initial product development and then the demand follows, and when there is a kind of demand that you think you can never meet, you suddenly realise there is still so much untapped potential. Harwinder Singh Ji, his story is exactly like that, again an extremely skilled artisan, who started working with us just in 2020 but realised that he is again one of those who is made to explore the untapped potential and hence a Master Artisan.
Maninder, a middle-aged talented artisan, who recently onboarded the team with his impeccable skills. Earlier, it was only his father who was part of the craft but now as he began to see the potential in the craft, he decided to help his father and the story continues.
