Started in 1999, the Craft Revival website contains an encyclopedia of information on the "makers, the techniques, processes and vocabulary of the intangible cultural heritage of South Asia." The site also includes a quarterly journal that brings together thoughtful commentary and research into this world, and recently featured articles include "The Potential of Eco-Friendly Floral Dyes in the Handmade Paper Industry" and "What is the Sari?". Visitors can also take advantage of sections like "Crafts" and "Artisans" to learn about craft traditions from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, and the Maldives. Moving along, the "Resources" area includes a visual directory of the crafts of India and a "Learning & Activity Center". Here visitors can learn about how to make paper by hand, explore the world of enameling, and learn about natural dyeing.
