"Hello, my name is Parvez A Warsi and I was born on August 9, 1954 in the colorful city of Agra, where beauty begins and ends with one of the seven wonders of the world - the Taj Mahal. I have a longstanding relationship with the world of handicrafts. It all started when my ancestors began stitching royal clothing for kings, queens, princes and princesses. As time passed by I got myself into tailoring, though not stitching clothes for the royals but for the general public. Then, I joined my brother-in-law who was into crafting decorative items with embroidered motifs. I began to work with him in 1974 and helped him for almost eight years. In 1982, I started my own workshop of crafting gift items, wall hangings, evening bags, etc., all featuring embroidery work. During this time I was still involved in designing and stitching dresses with embroidered motifs.

"I was personally involved in making the products until recently, for now I am able to offer jobs to other artisans and together we create new ides and designs. It's been a very long journey for me in the field of handicrafts. Every day is a new experience for me and with each experience I learn more about my work and my profession. I have very big dreams as far as my work is concerned.

"I have displayed my products in many exhibitions within and outside India like New York, San Francisco, Germany, Tokyo and Bangkok, and it has altogether been a great experience for me. The response from my customers has been overwhelming. Recognition is one of the most important aspects in this craft, for it means the appreciation of your work and that you've proven your ability. I am proud to mention that the Uttar Pradesh Government has been kind enough to appreciate my works of art, by honoring me with the Small Scale Industry Award. In San Francisco, I also received an Award for Excellence in handicrafts."

"Cheerful and colorful"

These are well made and quite durable. We have a few hanging off a metal tree all year long. My kids manhandle them here and there and they are completely intact. They have a bit of iridescent sheen in real life that photos don?t capture.

"Wonderful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Parvez, your stars are not only dazzling, but are a show stopper. The quality of your work is without equal. I have several stars, but those fashioned by Indian artisans are by far the most exquisite I seen. I know it is an old and time consuming craft, which goes far beyond craft. They are a work of art. India has always fascinated it me. It is one of the worlds oldest cultures and its ancient civilizations date back far in time. I have several sets of your stars I have bought through the years. Each year they awe family and friends who see them hanging from my Christmas trees (I put up more than one). Thank you, Parvez, I repeat, they are works of art. They are indeed Dazzling Stars.

"A Treasure"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Parvez A. Warsi, you are an old friend, even though Ive never met you. I fell in love with your star ornaments many years ago. The quality of your work is outstanding. They are beautiful. I can tell you take great care in your work. India has always fascinated me. It is one the oldest cultures on the planet. Many arts are sadly dying out. The stars are cherished by me for I know the time and dedication that went into each one. It is an old art. Thank you my friend. Your stars have adorned my Christmas trees for years. I have several sets in different colors and styles. They enhance the beauty of my Christmas trees. Yes, I choose a color and theme. Regardless of the theme, the stars always complement the tree. They are the admiration of all who see them. You are indeed a crafstman of your art. Yes, I consider them art, because art when seen causes something in us to glow and they do.
