Kantha Stitch Sari Bathrobe
|Made in India
This elegant and eco–friendly bathrobe is handcrafted from recycled silk sari fabric. The robe is hand–embroidered with a traditional running Kantha stitch. The Kantha Stitch Sari Bathrobe is handcrafted by talented makers working with our artisan partner CRC Exports. By negotiating fair prices that allow artisans to support their families and grow their workshops, CRC helps artisans develop self–sustaining businesses.
Who Made It: Craft Resource Center (CRC) helps informally organized artisan groups to develop self-sustaining businesses. CRC seeks to develop economic self-sufficiency for a vulnerable segment of society through traditional handcrafting skills. CRC provides marketing, design, finance and exporting assistance to a large number of artisan groups across India. CRC also provides raw materials, production coordination between groups and additional training. CRC considers artisans more important than products. This concern for artisans translates into a broader commitment to help others within the CRC network. Because of CRC’s coordination of craft production between different artisan groups, artisans have a high level of connection and cooperation. Artisan groups have been able to work together in partnership in times of need. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from CRC since 1993.
