About the Artisans
This piece was created through a cooperative that was established to provide integrity, welfare and better living conditions for very poor artisans in the villages of Moradabad, India. In addition to fair wages and business support, they provide an opportunity to acquire life insurance, medical care and a facility for their children's education. There are 28 small artisan groups whose lives have been significantly impacted by improved living conditions and increased market opportunities for their craft. There is also a wonderful ripple effect in their communities as their improved wages get invested in other community businesses. The artisans are compensated fairly for their work, and are given development help to help their communities rise above poverty.
