Coppre is a collective of 80 artisans in Tambat Ali, a small settlement of metalworking artisans in Pune, India. The area was first established as a center of copper artistry in the 17th century under the royal patronage of the Peshwas. However, this design heritage nearly died out under British rule. Today, the remaining craftspeople form a collective, which is mentored by Adhar Mirchandani whose vision is to enhance the livelihoods of these skilled craftspeople and revive the 300-year-old craft traditions of the area. Coppre is supported by AIACA and has received the organization’s ‘craftmark’ status.
