THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Matr Boomie

Country: India

In Rajasthan, India, the cultural art of leather craft and tooling is inherited through the generations. Mate Boomie's leather is tanned using a vegetable tanning method, which protects the environment and tannery workers from toxic chemicals. Artisans then use water-based dyes or oils to color the leather. With a set of hand tools, each artisan applies love and skill to cutting, stitching, embossing and embroidering our leather journals, bags and accessories.

Most of the leather artisan partners belong to a social class called Chamar, which excludes them from other classes of society and severely limits their resources. About 30 families formed a development group to empower artisans, beginning with advanced tooling techniques. As a result, the caste stigma is gradually diminishing as artisans make economic and social progress. Housing, sanitation and health care access have improved, and children are attending school. Most recently, the village realized its dream of opening its first school for girls!

Bigger than I expected

I've bought a few of these banks over the last few years and I think they're great. This one is a little bigger than the others, which I like a lot.
