A handcrafted, limited-edition product, Kathakraang is designed to be playfully dynamic and tactile. Essentially circular, the book can be unfolded and placed on a flat surface to adopt the form of a sphere. By using upcycled paper produced from fine waste cotton, each page is embellished with a unique natural texture. The frayed edges have been deliberately retained from the organic process of lifting handmade paper off the deckle frame. Experiments with different hand-binding techniques, while considering functionality and aesthetics both, led to the book being glued at the spine for strength and longevity. The hand-dyedred cotton fabric, which adorns the spine and the box, evokes an emotion of love and symbolises a sacred beginning in the Indian culture. This colour reminds one of the alta that adorns the palms and feet of a Kathak dancer, adding graceful prominence to their form.
