These hand-stitched Saree Quilts are made in Kolkata, India, by women that have been rescued from human trafficking, or are at risk of being trafficked.
Each uniquely patterned quilt is made from five-layers of recycled saree material that has been laundered, patched, and hand-stitched using the Kantha stitch.
A woman who is a survivor of human trafficking, or at risk of being trafficked, is now empowered to provide for her family and herself through the sale of this product. She has gained valuable job skills and an income that allows her to be less susceptible to becoming enslaved.
You are part of the link in helping her when purchasing a product made by her. Look for her name on the tag, as each quilt is signed by the Artisan.
MADE BY FREED because EACH ONE MATTERS!
