Abstract: Global concerns towards environment have been consistently increasing. The whole world is moving towards the energy conservation and use of alternative natural methods in every walk of life. Simultaneously, there has been an enormous value, demand and a preference which is growing for niche hand crafted products. The whole perception towards the handmade product and environment friendly products is fast changing and is looked at as almost divine, be it hand woven Japanese silk or handcrafted Swiss wrist watches. These products have attained a special status catering to very niche clientele. One can clearly connect the vacuum of availing the natural human resources/expertise and at the same time produce product of very high value, also contributing in a small way to the green revolution. In this paper, it proposes a design methodology wherein products are strategically designed in such way that the human energy and traditional knowledge / skills are leveraged to develop new generation of sustainable product.
