Your purchase fuels an innovative program of social change for women in poor areas of Mumbai, giving these marginalized women access to a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities through handcrafting.
Since 2004, SERRV International has partnered with women artisans in Mumbai, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, over 400 women artisans organized into 11 independent co-operatives learn skills such as hand-dyeing, sewing, and embroidery, and participate in all aspects of running a business. Becoming leaders in their work, their homes, and their neighborhoods, these brave and resourceful women create lasting change in their communities.
Women artisans in Mumbai use several techniques to create their variety of beautiful handcrafts, including embroidery, ikat, and block print. Read more about these handcrafting techniques.
