Pitaara, is an initiative by Dhaneshwari Devi, from the princely state Sayla, nestled in the heart of Gujarat, India.
The historic reign of this princely state can be traced back to the 12th century to the Jhala Rajputs who came to Saurashtra from Sindh. Sayla was founded in 1751 by Seshmalji, who was a great warrior as well as a visionary. He is accredited with laying the foundation of the Rajmahal and fortifying the province.
Pitaara is an earnest effort to preserve the glorious history of this beautiful land by promoting the local arts and crafts in India and overseas.
Dhaneshwari Devi, has conceptualized Pitaara as a means to ensure that the craftsmen and artists have access to individual buyers, art collectors, and connoisseurs who are passionate about the royal heritage of Rajputana empires and other contemporary art.
