The whole process from creating the tie-dye and batik prints to bringing the designs from sketch to wearable pieces was entirely carried out by the women trained through our skill empowerment programs making it a purely ethical collection. Developing this collection has given me such exhilaration not just because it is a beautiful collection but rather the months of hard work and devotion from our collaborators and team members. We are truly grateful”
The collection evokes to continually inspire by creating employment opportunities and youth empowerment and promote dignity in hand skill artisans.
