> Reviving and Preserving

>
As a design team, one of our goals is to help India preserve her native designs. As a business team, we want to teach Indians how to utilize the fair trade market in order to revive their communities. We’ve seen a beautiful marriage of these two goals through the interacting with a few, key Indian designers. Yesterday we met with Mena and Pankaj, the founders of Qasab and Khamir, organizations that have a vision for Kutch that will help Bajalia achieve the goals for the artisans and villages. We were able to pick up some of the merchandise we ordered during our last visit to India. We also spent some time with new designs for purses and tapestries. Just like our village visits encourage our work, creative brainstorming time with incredibly talented Indian designers reminds us why we do what we do.
