Block printing is a revered art form that is native to Rajasthan, India. It is a labor intensive process that requires mastery, especially in wood-block carving. The piping and zipper tassel is made with assorted teal sari patterns.
These artisans have partnered with Matr Boomie, a fair trade company that works with 20,000 artisans in 40 communities throughout India!
One of their success stories includes a young girl, Sana, who contacted Matr Boomie in 2009. Her family and community were tired of the exploitative treatment they were receiving from local tradesmen. Since working with Matr Boomie, their earnings have doubled, they have upgraded their workplace, and children are able to stay in school longer. Sana was even the first girl in her village to attend college!!
