ARTISANS IN INDIA
Your purchase creates income and social reform for hundreds of artisans in Mumbai and other parts of India, as well as funding community improvement projects for their communities.
Since 1976, SERRV International has partnered with artisans in India, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, over 800 artisans in more than 50 cooperatives and family workshops throughout India receive needed income, interest-free loans, business and computer training, and advances to purchase raw materials. They also receive the support of welfare workers who help provide health clinics and education for children, increase sanitation, and improve living conditions.
Artisans in India use several techniques to create their variety of beautiful handcrafts, including metalwork, hand painting, carving, jacquard, macramé, and screen print.
