Hogla leaves and Jute plants are some of the most sustainable materials that nature can provides us with. These plants are sustainably harvested and dried to convert into strips or fibers. These are then braided and woven into beautiful functional baskets by master artisans in Bangladesh.
Saris have been present in Indian culture and imagery for thousands of years. Hindu goddesses of beauty, knowledge and power are depicted draped in the colorful garments, and women throughout India wear saris for many occasions. Upcycling saris reincarnates these beautiful fabrics into eco-chic fashion accessories while empowering women artisans to build sustainable livelihoods and communities.
Basket Weaving Artisans
Bangladesh has suffered genocide, floods, cyclones and tornados, and the dense population is extremely impoverished. As a response to these events, a non-profit was formed to provide art training, health camps, and social and economic development programs to empower artisans. Our artisans are part of this group.
Upcycled Sari Artisans
United through the guidance of our India team, small groups of women from urban slums in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh work in their homes to learn simple techniques to fashion jewelry and home décor with upcycled saris and other recycled materials. Because of the patriarchal culture, most of the women are confined to their homes with family responsibilities. The training and income provided by this craft empowers them financially and strengthens their confidence and support for their families and community.
