Sangraha started as a project of Dr Jaspal Kalra, during his doctoral research in 2015. ‘Sangraha’ in hindi means for group of people and also commitment to sustaining heritage (Sangrahalya or museum) The word in itself expresses the vision behind it which was co-working with artisans in collaboration and reviving heritage.
