Meet the Artisans of Sewing New Futures, India
Sewing New Futures is a social enterprise based on the outskirts of New Delhi that helps marginalised women and girls to have access to paid training and production related to sewing, appliqué, and textiles. Currently, Sewing New Futures provides 40 women and adolescent girls with limited or no educational background or previous training with intensive support to gain skills. Its vision is to ensure marginalized women emerge economically empowered to sew their own future.
"The quality of the craftsmanship is outstanding, so I know I will have this piece with me for decades to come." - Amy Beam purchased from It's Only Fair, USA
These women are not asking for handouts, they simply want the opportunity to show the outside world their talents and to make a brighter future for themselves through their own hard work.
Custom orders and in-house designed textiles reveal a story of Indian women's dedication, craftsmanship, and distinction.
Sewing New Futures connects backwards caste women with fair wages for training and for work.
