Misunderstood, misused and often forgotten, the word ‘Ethnic’ symbolizes the link we share with our roots, the origin of our traditions and the embodiment of our true identity. Initiated by Craftsvilla, World Ethnic Day is on June 19th every year to celebrate our vivid and vibrant culture.
Gaining prominence with the celebration of each World Ethnic Day, originally launched in 2015, Craftsvilla laid the foundation and managed to foster a strong and authentic feeling of ethnic pride, quickly turning this beautiful day into a widespread phenomenon.
This year, #CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay celebrations are bigger and better as the brand successfully inspired social media audiences to showcase their favourite aspects of ethnic pride, whether its clothing, food or even decorations. #CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay even witnessed participation from celebrities such as TV star Anita Hassanandani, Sandeepa Dhar, Sakshi Gokhale, Kuvelu Tetseo and others to make it a nationwide affair. The brand roped in 29 influencers, one influencer per state, ensuring a full representation of India’s diverse and rich culture.
#CraftsVillaWorldEthnicDay #Repost @anitahassanandani, Mumbai (@get_repost) ・・・ As a Sindhi, born & brought up in Mumbai, my sense of ethnic fashion varied…. but I always loved sarees… I was fascinated by South Indian sarees. And then getting married to a South Indian has just made my love for Sarees shine brighter than ever! So this #CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay, I am celebrating my eternal love for drapes with this beauty. It is making me look, feel & be my gorgeous self! #SouthIndianBahu @craftsvilla_dotcom
Anita Hassanandani opted for a graceful and gorgeous South Indian saree from Craftsvilla, whereas Sandeepa Dhar dedicated her beautiful Craftsvilla saree to the strong and independent Indian women.
#CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay #Repost @iamsandeepadhar, Jammu (@get_repost) ・・・ While growing up, it wasn’t “cool” to wear anything traditional. Coz I was the yuppie 90’s kid who watched “Grease” innumerable times and for whom high waisted skinny pants was the holy grail. Sarees were what only moms, aunts and grandmothers wore & my mom had to literally fight a world war 3 with me every time there was a Pooja at home or a wedding to attend coz I would just refuse to wear traditional outfits. Until I was introduced to this cinematic visual phenomenon called “Devdas” & voila! My love affair with Indian wear had begun. And Nothing spells elegance better than a saree. The use of colors in the saree has also had specific meaning behind them. Red, used in the traditional sense is associated with the warrior and a sign of valour. Let’s celebrate the valour of strong, independent Indian women on the world Ethnic day on June 19th. #CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay ? @munnasphotography MUH @nishgulatimakeovers Saree: @craftsvilla_dotcom

Celebrating #CraftsvillaWorldEthnicDay on June 19. Let’s kick off the party. Wearing a gorgeous saree from @craftsvilla_dotcom. Find link below. More pics on my blog. Link in bio. I am who I am not only because of what I wear but that tells the world about where I come from. What I wear does not define me but how I carry myself tells you who I am. I’m all the things that I say do and wear and I’m a proud member of the ethnic tribe of the world. I wear Culture and I am Naganess. An ethnic warrior princess. A voice from the hills. Telling the story of my people through my clothes and songs.
