These products are made by rural men and women who find viable employment through a selfsufficient and environmentally sustainable supply chain in the villages where they live. In a region where small farms are many families' only source of income, being involved in activities like spinning, dyeing and weaving help sustain rural livelihoods during the offseason. Cocoonrearing in former wasteland has given local farmers an additional source of income and involved other members of the family related activities such as vermicomposting and production of organic manure.
