The very idea is to explore eco-friendly styles of designing. Here we share inspiring interior/ exteriors/ furnishings/ fabrics/ materials and much more non polluting products to incorporate in day-to-day home aesthetics and thus express our love to Mother Earth..

Art and Architecture are two indivisible aspects of designing. As a design enthusiast we will get some peeps back through historic architecture of the India and world as well as its modern day presence. We will imbibe in us the inherent charm and beauty of the traditional dwellings and learn their wise old techniques of sustainable designs.

GLOBAL FOLK HERITAGE

"The soul of India lives in its villages."

- Mahatma Gandhi

Yes, the roots of our unique literature, paintings, miniatures, handcraft or tribal art lies in our villages. Folk art defines our cultural heritage and we will celebrate them all by simply incorporating them into our lives. Our homes are sacred places and so our folk heritage. Join us to keep them alive.

THE NAME “Obsidian” ?

Our blog’s name is inspired from the beautiful obsidian stone. Its an igneous rock and thus shares an unbound relationship with the Earth. This motivates us to make this obsidian space a place to pamper our relationship with Mother Earth. With all the positive obsidian vibes I wish my readers a “Happy Obsidian Space”.

HELLO !

I’m Shruti, a content writer with a knack of arts and aesthetics. This is my space to showcase my love for folk culture and heritage architecture. Join me and enjoy this journey of appreciating our global heritage.
