Started in November 2000, we are an environmentally friendly organisation exporting handmade felt Christmas and wall decorations across USA and Europe, providing incremental income to ladies and an opportunity for them to be financially independent. Our vision is to be a respected export firm, that provides, by leveraging artisanal skills, unique hand made products and related services, in best possible quality, to international importers. Our mission is to achieve our objectives in an environment of fairness, honesty and courtesy towards our clients, employees, vendors and society at large. We have a commitment to surpass our customer expectations and to set standards in our business and transactions and be an example for the industry and our own teams to be ethical, sincere and open in our dealings. We are also committed to be objective and transaction–oriented, thereby earning trust and respect and to strive relentlessly, to constantly improve ourselves, our teams, our services and products so as to become the best. Based in Jaipur, with an in-house strength of 175 people and indirect association with a team of 2000 ladies we focus on women empowerment and 95% of the employment generated is for females. We specialise in 100% wool felt, and everything from raw wool through to shipment is done in-house, felt making, dyeing, cutting, stitching, packing and dispatch – all processes are managed in-house. Our production facility in Vaishali Nagar, Jaipur, which houses the stitching, cutting, packing, designing, and dispatch section, has been created in close proximity to the residential areas giving comfort to women workers to be working nearby their homes. We have another production dyeing and printing unit at Bagru (25km from Jaipur), where we have invested in a state of art, 100% socially and environmentally compliant unit where all water that is used for dyeing is recycled and reused, so a 100% zero liquid discharge unit - as per pollution control norms, with rain water storage pond of 1,250,000 litres of water, and a 42kw solar power generation infrastructure, and 500 KLD ZLD effluent treatment plant - more info can be seen at www.jaipurbloc.com. A third 100% compliant unit is under construction in Jaipur, a 2700m2 facility, which we hope to commission by June 2018 . We are the proud recipient of an award from the president of India for innovation in crafts in 2005. We have been selected by a Dutch government agency because of our design and vision for further training and export marketing. Working in a highly design sensitive market we are lucky that our products were selected for the first Christmas of US President Mr Barack Obama for their living room and also the Christmas decorations for the House of Commons London. We are an equal opportunity organisation, with special emphasis on providing employment to ladies from socially less fortunate communities, differently-abled people and widows from urban and rural areas. We are actively associated with Blind People Association project in Rajasthan (they are an NGO based at Ahmedabad, Gujarat, working for mentally and visually challenged people).
