The Artisans

This bag is made by underprivileged women from urban slums of Hyderabad who are trained in tailoring, hand embroidery and financial literacy. These useful skills give the women access to a larger social and occupational network, and provides them an opportunity to develop a sustainable livelihood in a safe environment, improve their quality of life, and build a sense of agency.

Your Impact

By choosing a product from Kriti Social Initiatives, you have a two-fold impact. On the social front, you directly contribute to improving the lives and livelihoods of poor urban women – and by extension, of their entire household – by creating a market for their skills. Since the product is upcycled from discarded fabrics, it keeps usable material from ending up as garbage and polluting the environment, thereby also reducing the need for virgin resources. By opting for upcycled products in the things we use daily, we allow the Earth to heal a little!

Kriti

Kriti is a not for profit organisation working in Hyderabad slums to help provide livelihoods for women and education for children. Kriti’s livelihood project aims to empower poor women by providing them an opportunity to earn income in a safe environment that maintains their dignity, improves their quality of life and their sense of agency. Kriti’s skills training centres have trained over 400 women in tailoring, 100 women in embroidery and 50 women in mehendi hand design, since inception of this program. Women acquire skills that convert into economic opportunities; once trained, they either work with Kriti as tailors and embroiderers or go on to start their own small ventures.
