"When I was 16, I joined my family in marble art. I learned the work from my uncle. Since childhood, I had this inclination toward the stone's exquisiteness and beauty."

"I began collaborating with you as an artisan in 2006. You have given me a way to exhibit my talent to the whole world and earn a stable income.

"Although marble stonework is my family heritage, when I joined you, I was in the initial stage of my work. I had started out on my own with a small place where I used to work with two artisans to help me. Back then, I sold my work mostly to tourists who visited Agra, as I didn't have a showroom. But now I have my own outlet and a big workshop with ten assistants working with me, some of whom I taught myself. My brothers also work with me now and help me in my work. In the beginning, I suffered a lot of difficulties. I had very little money and no place where I could expand my work. But slowly, my income has increased and I have been able to expand my work too.

"In 2005, I received the Hastshilp Award organized by the Development Commissioner for handicrafts, and won the best Uttar Pradesh State Prize in 2007 for my marble work.

"I applied and managed to procure a tour guide license in 2006 so that I could show the heritage of Uttar Pradesh, the Taj Mahal, to the admirers of this craft and whoever is interested in seeing the majesty of the place.

"After working with you, my life has become more stable and I'm able to live comfortably. Along with coasters, vases and boxes, I have also started making new items like trays and marble plates that I've added to my collection of stonework.

"Thank you for appreciating and purchasing my designs. When you choose them, you not only help me but also many other people who are making these beautiful creations with their hard work and skill. I hope to keep the art alive and transmit my skill to the next generation."

Original Artisan Story

"Hello, I am Imran Qureshi, and I'm from the mesmerizing city of Agra. My family has a very long association with the art of marble and other handicrafts. And the fact that Agra hosts one of the wonders of world – the Taj Mahal – has been an inspiration for many. While other family members were involved in marble art, my father was into carpet weaving and received a national award for his work. With my family crafting so many different types of work, I had the opportunity to choose my field of interest and I opted for marble crafting.

"When I was 16, I joined my family in marble art. I learned the work from my uncle. Since childhood, I had this inclination toward the stone's exquisiteness and beauty. I grew up seeing my uncles create wonderful and innovative designs. There are lots of talented people in Agra, and most of them work to keep alive the traditional art of the city. Our designs include coasters, vases and boxes featuring fine gemstone inlay, which has been admired by many.

"A lot of tourists come to Agra and we sell mostly to them. It is a great opportunity for us to be associated with you. I hope our designs will be appreciated far and wide."

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

SLEEVE

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.
