When our products are made, they need to be carefully folded, packed, and shipped out to our warehouse here in New York. Not only do our artisans handmake all of our products, but there are artisans that work hard on getting these products shipped safely and as quickly as possible!

Arjun Singh (pronounced Are-juhn Sing) packages all of our skirt boxes. He makes sure that the skirts are packed snuggly in the box, so that he can fit more skirts per-box, making shipping more Earth-friendly. Arjun makes sure that each box is protected so that nothing is damaged during the long journey from India to New York! 

Many of the artisans, like Arjun Singh, are working while they continue their education. Education is the key needed to get out of generational poverty, but opportunities for continued education are scarce for people that are poor or outside of the caste system

Arjun Singh hopes to graduate in the future. For now, he is still packing the skirt boxes; a friendly and positive force among the artisans, always smiling while he works.
