Pottery is an age-old art in India. Artisans use a potter’s wheel, handmade mold, or their hands to shape natural clay into beautiful pieces of art. The pottery of Rajasthan includes various ancient forms, from rustic Terracotta to the delicately painted Blue Pottery of Jaipur. Pottery is considered to be a mystical trade because it incorporates five vital elements: air, fire, earth, water, and ether.
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.
This craft has been passed down for generations in Rajasthan. We currently partner with two groups, consisting of a combined 55 artisans. Both of these groups are from rural areas that are well connected to urban markets by highway.
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.
