In many areas of India, cars are a luxury. 45% of people do not own a car (source), but there are many other ways of getting around that our artisans use. Bikes are the most common vehicles used to get around, and our friend Kushal is in need of a new ride!
Kushal Mandal (pronounced Ku-Shawl Muhn-duhl) is in charge of all things Sari Wrap Skirt related! He is in charge of making sure our skirts are top quality. From the fabric, the stitching, and the packing - Kushal loves ensuring perfection in every skirt that he touches - it's his favorite thing about his job! That's why he's the overseer of our skirt operation in India.
Everyday, Kushal makes his way to work on his bike. He's been using the same bike for sometime and a new one would ensure that he can get to work safely!
