“You never know what you can accomplish until you try”
“That I would return to my homeland to work with artisans in some of the remotest areas; that together we would co-create products for the world’s most fashion conscious cities was something I never imagined possible. Translating our vision to rural Indian artisans who had until now, never crafted for an international audience, dealing with logistics and production challenges, using the digital space to show the world who made our beautiful products (and how) and crunching numbers – was and often continues to be my mission impossible. But I believe that things will have to be done differently if you truly want to bring a CHANGE that will enrich every element and individual in the value chain” Today, the brand KARIGAR sells across 60 stores and retail outlets across the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, UK, Germany, Switzerland and United State and our webshop attracts consumers for 20 + countries. We have worked with around 2000 artisans (mostly women) from some of the remotest villages in India and continue to train, develop and empower more and more artisans through our work.
