Rajasthan is famous for its beautiful destinations, delicious cuisines, historical buildings, and vibrant culture. A state that is known for its awesomeness is also known as the origin of royal Thewa art. Nathulal Ji Soni is the man behind the initiation of this craft some 400 years back and the town that holds the importance of its origin is known as Paratpgarh: a quaint town in Rajasthan. It is said that Nathulal Soni Ji was a royal goldsmith who works for the royal family of Pratapgarh at that time. To hone his passion for jewellery and crafts, Nathulal Ji Soni keeps experimenting with his new designs. Nathulal Ji made a design using golden thread and glass which immediately attracts the interest of people and he named the craft Thewa Art. He uses the images of a peacock, Krishna, bride, etc on his craft to give it an enhancing and royal look. When Nathulal Ji presented his craft to the ruler of Pratapgarh, everyone in their families liked it and the Thewa craft has become an instant hit of that time. Slowly the word has spread in the nearby cities and then in nearby states. Nathulal Ji kept making the craft pieces with the same purity and affection for other royal families as well. After him, the art of making Thewa has kept on transferring from generation to generation in the family of RajSoni. Thewa art gains a name and fame all over the world when Shri Mahesh Rajsoni received the prestigious "Padma Shri" Award from the honorable president of India for his contribution to the field of Indian culture and Indian art. Mahesh Rajsoni Ji has experimented with the designs and infused the dash of different colors in the making of Thewa art which is well received by the users. Mahesh Rajsoni had made the art popular in the whole world and attended various seminars and conferences to promote the art. Now, Thewa has become a known brand and has an online presence with the name of thewastore.com, it has all the collections from old-world charm to the new in-line jewellery. It is quite fascinating to know that a heritage art from 400 years back is still charming the people with its unique designs and royal texture. Thewastore is an initiative by Kalpesh Rajsoni son of Mahesh Rajsoni to keep the family legacy alive and make this art popular worldwide. He has travelled more than 11 countries to exhibit thewa art. Currently, He is working with some other artists to create new fusion designs and crafting entirely new patterns in thewa art jewellery.
