NOTES ABOUT THE MAKERS
The Women’s Skills Development Organization (WSDO) is a non-profit Fair Trade organisation that has been working since 1975 to empower women who face difficult and significant social and economic hardships—being differently abled, abused, widowed, divorced, single, orphaned or of marginalised castes.
As a Fair Trade organization, WSDO ensures fair wages and production processes that minimise environmental impacts by using local and raw materials along with eco-friendly dyes.
WSDO is dedicated to beautiful, stylish items that are made ethically and responsibly. Our products are traditional and craft-based yet with a contemporary touch. We make the finest quality handwoven and handmade products using 100% cotton imported from India (mostly from fair trade raw material, but also from non-fair trade suppliers who are from disadvantaged and economically challenged backgrounds) and allo wool from nettle growing in the foothills of the Himalayas.
