Feather Folklore Hair Clips | Set of 4
Our non-profit partner represents more than 6,500 artisans in 10 states of India. The association’s name, meaning “hope” in Sanskrit, represents its goal to sustain the marketing ability of individual and family–based artisans. They work to ensure that benefits of handicraft production reach the craftspeople themselves and promotes sustainability and helps eliminate producer debt through direct purchases and advance payments. Producer benefits include educational assistance for children, medical checkups and treatment, a health center at Saharanpur, savings programs for artisans and spouses, non-formal education projects and relief–related social projects.
With every item purchased with us, a tree is planted in partnership with the National Forest Foundation.
Throughout history, types of hair ornamentation and the materials from which they were made indicated religious significance, social class, age group, and level of fashion awareness. In South and East Africa, cow horns, bones, and sheepskin were used to adorn hair with many of these totemic ornaments worn by men rather than women.
