ABOUT THE ARTISANS
Women like Bina, Sushila, Sarita and Sita know a thing or two about determination. Like many women in the region, they desperately wanted a chance to earn money to help their families. With hardworking husbands and school age children, they came together in creating this beautiful Water Scarf through a co-op of artisans. Thanks to their jobs, each gifted artisan brings in enough money to take care of herself and her family.
