New Delhi's old and famous Connaught Circle, during the early summer of
1990, a small group of designers, artists and friends managed – with the
help of a few fortunate coincidences – to set up a studio-shop which was
remarkably free from the impositions and demands of (heartless) markets
and (artless) clients.
The ideas and experimentations that followed were the seed that grew to become the 'People Tree'. Today, all of us at People Tree take pride in our reputation as a small independent business which combines a sense of social purpose and ecological responsibility with the spirit of collective creativity. This has been the vision which has guided our work as a design, production and retail centre.
