SAAR is Sanskrit for ‘Essence’. SAAR is a Marasim Arts & Culture Foundation, that works to sustain Traditional Craftsmanship.

This time of social distancing and spiritual uprising inspired us to contemplate on the ’essence’ of our work at MARASIM. SAAR comes from that place of reflection on our engagement with traditional crafts through our ‘Grassroots’ approach at MARASIM.

 SAAR will give our readers a unique humanitarian perspective on craftsmanship. The stories, imagery and life from across the cultural quarters will arrive to you in a way that you feel connected to the history of traditional crafts and artisan perspective. 

“Our realization of oneness as a species has to extend beyond the current tragedy into a forever wisdom”
