our artisan cooperatives

Bihar

Peace Silk Scarves weave strength and hope for struggling communities in rural Northern India. The scarves are created with a reverence for the land and the people. Women are empowered because they play a central role in production and the land is reforested to provide enough trees for the cocoons.

Jodhpur

Our collection of handbags and cotton scarves is handmade at an empowerment center for women in Jodhpur, India. As part of the lowest caste in a male-dominated society, the artisans are overcoming discrimination and poverty as they receive a basic education and become talented artisans.

Ranthambore

Skilled artisans create our beautiful table linen collection as a reflection of the natural world that surrounds them. Inspired by vibrant Indian jungles, each piece is block printed by hand with floral and animal motifs.
