The company that make this charming item specialises in beading, the natural dyeing of materials, weaving and embroidery, and amongst other things, produces evening bags, photo albums, jewellery boxes and mirror pouches. They employ more than one hundred and fifty people at their spacious premises, and provide employment opportunities for a further thousand families in the process. All employees receive Provident Funding, ESI, paid maternity leave and insurance. The company has adopted four children and pay for their education and up-bringing. Their main aim is to preserve centuries old traditions of hand embroidery techniques such as Zardozi, Aari, Kutch, Lucknowi and Kantha. Kantha, as an example, in Sanskrit literally means rags, the technique evolved out of a necessity to drape or protect against the cold. When precious silks and muslins wore out, instead of throwing them away, the women piled them in layers and stitched them together. It's recycling brought out of necessity into art form. Make someone smile and gift one of these lovely purses. Don't forget to put a penny in for good luck!
