Empowering Women In Remote Villages In India
With one of our Indian partners, 'Slow Made in India' who produce handmade organic yarn, we are setting up a collective providing (at no charge) wooden looms to women in remote villages enabling them to work from home making our bands. The yarn is supplied by Slow Made in India', our partner, and we purchase the bands to provide these wonderful ladies with an income, enabling them to work from home whilst they look after their families and avoid COVID. Too often work can only be found long distances from the village. The yarn itself is organic and every component is made by hand.
This initiative is in its early days and we are hoping it may create a model for others to follow in future.
