About the Process:

In Rajasthan, India, skilled artisans repurpose scraps and fabrics from the region's large textile industry into vibrant patchwork clothing and accessories. By hand, fabrics are cut, stitched, and embellished with colorful thread, sequins, and embroidery. By utilizing discarded fabric, these beautiful and one-of-a-kind pieces help reduce landfill waste and give workers in rural areas a steady source of income. Currently, there are approximately 20 artisans creating these patchwork-style products full-time, with roughly 100 more contracted on a need-for-work basis. 

In Rajasthan, when sacred cows pass from natural causes, their hide is treated with vegetable and water-based dyes and hand-tooled by skilled craftspeople into functional everyday items. Members of this artisan community in India generally have limited access to basic resources; your purchase will aid community development projects including housing, sanitation, education, and health care improvements. How cool!
