About Us

- Lets head to an abode in the east of Calcutta,

which is merely nine kilometres from the edge of the city. As soon as you step into the space you will be greeted by the rustling leaves, chirping birds and flapping butterflies. Once you start following the curvy trail, four architectural splendours, each distinct in their make-ups and appearances extend their invitation. They make you curious, you venture them one by one only to be amazed by their quirky assortments and assertions.

You are an explorer now, you wonder around and discover more – a weaving studio and a dyeing unit, a tiny pottery studio, a wood workshop, a metal workshop, a print-making unit, a dokra workshop, and an alluring elevated arena designated to host performances. Soon you realise that you are transported to a wonderland, something that, till yesterday, might have only existed in your imagination.

Jalpath, it is the place where all the amenities of modern day city life can be found in a rural setting. Out here, among the flora and fauna, you can catch up with the other side of your personality - your true self - as you do what you enjoy the most or listen to the birds singing - or just do nothing. Welcome to Jalpath.
