About the artisans: This piece of fair trade clothing is made by women embroidery artisans in Northern India, who do the fine hand-embroidery in their homes. This gives them the freedom and flexibility to work when it is convenient for them while earning a sustainable livelihood from their craft. With the savings earned from this work, these women form their own micro-finance groups, so they can handle any financial needs without resorting to high-interest money lenders.
Every purchase of this product directly benefits these artisan groups and enables them to pass their rich traditions on to the next generation. It also helps to ensure that these women artisans gain greater economic and social freedom and can effect lasting changes in their lives, the lives of their children, and their communities.
