Description

We are working on making the world safer with well designed, confidence-inducing, and technically adept face masks. I am collaborating with my mom in India who is a designer of masks and fashion accessories as well as manufactures these in her factory in India, while training and providing a sustainable source of livelihood to female tailors / artisans hailing from rural India.

CORPORATE SOCIAL INITIATIVE:

The designing & manufacturing of our masks is a part of our sustainability initiative via upcycling. For every pack of masks you buy, you directly help in keeping our Female Tailors and Artisans employed. We train and provide a sustainable source of livelihood to these artisans who hail from rural Indian villages in UP and Bihar.  Part of our revenues goes toward funding social-impact causes, such as donating safely cooked packaged meals to children and moms from nearby slums.

Aditi, the entire business model is brilliant and I really appreciate socio-economic effect that this idea is putting in effect. The manufacturing model will definitely help in faster production. Really liked the concept - 'while training and providing a sustainable source of livelihood to female tailors / artisans hailing from rural India'
