Plantable Thank You Cards:
Eco-friendly cards with a message expressing our gratitude for your contribution to our campaign. When planted in the earth, they grow Indian saffron marigolds. The paper is hand-made using recycled newsprint sheets and sprinkled with dry flower seeds.
Available in 6 colors, these masks are exclusively made for our campaign. They're hand-woven using 100% organic, naturally dyed, and locally grown cotton. Each mask is made by women weavers in the Chendamangalam district of Kerala, through WESTxEAST's collaboration with the Save The Loom Project. Save The Loom provides sustained work for local women artisans who make custom textile products, thus preserving craft clusters native to India.
Thenmala Tote Bag:
Made from 100% unbleached and chemical-free cotton that is biodegradable. The bag has a firm grip, sturdy stitching, and long straps for durability and strength for everyday use.
100% cotton upcycled fabrics, hand-blocked dabu prints from Rajasthan, and cruelty-free vegan leather are sewn by local artisans into this unisex wallet/card holder.
Nila silk scarf:
Soft mulberry silk fabric hand block-printed using natural charcoal and khadi chalk pigments in traditional Jaipur motifs and techniques. These unisex scarves are named after one of the most beautiful rivers in Kerala, as the feather-light fabric drapes like flowing water.
These cufflinks are crafted using real swarovski crystals, which are carefully adorned by hand into precisely carved silver metal.
Sundari Banarasi Shawl:
These beautiful shawls come in 2 dual-toned colors: purple-pink or orange-pink. A colorful play of contrasting colors in the warp and the weft of these handwoven silk shawls brings surprising tones and shades at every stroke of light.
Shobana Potli Bag:
Made in pure eri silk (black), raw tussar silk (white), or zari (gold) fabrics, these potli bags can be worn traditionally on the wrists or on the waist or as side bags using the trendy gold chains. The fabrics & colors can be customized as per your request!
