Above all we honor and value our artisan and team members as well as our earth. We work with 2000+ artisans in 40+ artisan groups in India. 

Through the selling of our handmade products we are able to provide safe working conditions, educational programs, new skills and sustainable trade practices.

  • women

    Most women in India are at a disadvantage. In this male-dominated society, women earn 56% of what their male colleagues earn for performing the same work.

    our impact:

    55% of our artisan partners are women. We focus on creating financial independence for these women, giving them a voice.

  • minorities

    Discrimination against people of low caste and minority groups is a social issue in India. In many communities, low-caste people are still considered “untouchables” and lack social and financial opportunities.

    our impact:

    We provide marginalized groups with skills training and opportunities to participate in trade.

  • rural

    Artisans in rural India lack resources and direct access to market.

    our impact: 

    45% of our artisan partners are from rural areas. We help by offering design support and giving them access to market.
