AKFD weds centuries of craftsmanship with the excitement of creating new traditions. We infuse contemporary design sensibilities into our crafts. In order to revive the crafts, we must patronize the best and establish high benchmarks for quality and consistency. AKFD started as a small enterprise exploring and developing furniture in the craft rich city of Jaipur, India. Unlike other manufacturing facilities, we rely upon the crafts-people and their skills for inspiration rather than imitation or implanting of design ideas without context. Recruiting the best crafts-people, we learn from them and collaborate to develop new products. Each product made is hereafter scrutinized for quality, utility and commercial viability.
AKFD collaborates with architects and specifiers to develop Bespoke Furniture, Lighting and Installations.
