She guides crafts people in design, organization and marketing all over India and abroad. She is the creator of Dilli Haat, a popular crafts marketplace in Delhi. Her work in bringing together crafts people of India and other countries has helped share skills and capacity building.

She is a prolific writer and has published books on the Crafts of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh, the Craft Traditions of India, Viswakarma's Children, a socio-economic study of crafts people, and Crafting Nature.

She edits and publishes a monthly political journal, The Other Side.
