Capital of the Indian republic, former seat of the mighty Mughal empire, and hub for Indian contemporary design. Lush green open parks, bustling alleyways of the old city, medieval ruins, and cutting edge designer studios make Delhi one of the world’s most interesting metropolises.
India By Hand showed us the Delhi visitors don’t often see. We had a backstage pass to the workspaces of India’s design rock stars. We explored hidden, charming alleyways of Mughal era Delhi and received eye-opening insights on the history and culture of this fascinating city.
