By Hand From The Heart is a biannual Makers Market held in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.
Let’s meet Riddhi Desai today on our Meet The Makers Series! Riddhi is a full time designer, illustrator and founder of Tinyfarm, a design studio based in Bangalore. We catch up with Riddhi about her design influences and why Chennai is currently her biggest inspiration. She also shares in brief, Tiny Farms’s collection that will be showcased at By Hand From The Heart Makers Market here in Chennai.
How would you describe your design aesthetics?
I like to go with the flow and not restrict myself to styles. This year the biggest inspiration for my work has been the Chennai city; as I moved to Bangalore just last year from Chennai. The collection is bold, minimal and modern with an indian touch to it.
How do your artworks come to be? What’s involved?
Stories are always the inspiration behind Tinyfarm Collections, whether its floral theme which was inspired by the meaning of each flower; or the Chennai series illustrations. There is always a story to tell like the Women of Chennai.
Tell us about Tiny Farm’s showcase at By Hand From The Heart Makers Market.
There are more new exciting products like Notebooks, Notecards, Fridge Magnets, Calendars, Art Prints, Framed Art, etc at the show. The Collections will also feature more art from floral and Chennai series.

I met many customers who keep coming back for By Hand From The Heart exhibits. It was great to interact with them and a learning experience as well. It’s always a joy to find people who love what you love doing the most.
