We’ve added some exciting pieces to our collection!
Shopanthropic’s latest eco-friendly collection of journals, cushion covers, stoles, and bags are creations of the individual artisan cooperatives from various parts of India.
Our eco-friendly journals are made by a cooperative called Eco Friendly Papers in the state of Rajasthan, India. The paper used in this product has been created with pulp made by recycled scraps of waste textile collected from the textile industries, making it 100% tree-free. Also, the cover of this journal is made of cruelty-free leather (leather that comes from animals that died naturally).
Cotton cushion covers in our Home collection are made from locally sourced, locally grown natural cotton by artisans from the desert region of North Western India. With their creativity and imagination these artisans made home decor products by stitching together odds and ends from the textile industry and by using natural dyes & traditional wood block printing.
The yoga bag in our Bag collection is made by artisans from a cooperative in Western India. This region has very little agricultural opportunity; therefore, many people make handicrafts as a source of alternative income. Our hand-embroidered clutches are made by women artisans from a cooperative in the Kutch region of India that was affected by a massive earthquake in the past and these artisans are generating income by making hand-embroidered products and rebuilding their community & their families. Also our jute bags are made following fair trade practices by artisans in Southern India.
Our cotton stoles are made by a handicraft enterprise in the state of Rajasthan, India that is supporting women artisans of the region.
With the support of the artisan cooperatives, these artisans are getting fair wages, safe working environment, opportunities to grow, and are having a dignified life. By purchasing these products you are connecting with thousands of artisans across India, supporting them and their communities, preserving the environment, and also empowering women since most of these artisans are women.
