Khurja, the “ceramics city” had a big testing and experimental laboratory for product design and quality control. This did not suit unscrupulous exporters, who wanted cheap and polluting chemicals to churn out sub-standard products that looked bright and colorful nevertheless. The laboratory closed down for want of work.
Dadoos Industries, under CRC’s guidance, managed not only to survive but achieved excellence. Its range features stoneware, fired at a very high temperature, to make the products long-lasting. It also hand-paints products using glazing from natural materials. Today, they have a sprawling wide-open workshop where contemporary designs are used to make products fit for any dinner table.
