Noah's Ark - Talib Rasoo

Artisan Organization: Noah's Ark - Talib Rasoo

Country: India

Welcome Talib Rasoo to the GlobeIn family! Talib is 34 years old and is married with a 2-year-old daughter. Talib lives in Saharanpur, India, which is known for its wooden handicrafts. Woodworking is a family career, and like many others, Talib learned his skills from his father who is also an artisan. At the studio where he works, Talib is the head artisan and manages several young artisans underneath him. Talib’s daily tasks revolve around sample development, wood sizing, and managing the other artisans.

About one year ago, his workshop nearly closed down due to a lack of incoming orders; but recently, GlobeIn’s orders have given new life to his workshop, and employment for the 25 artisans working with it! Last rainy season, for example, Talib’s workshop flooded, which only added to the stress of his thinning business. However, due to the income he’s gained from GlobeIn orders, Talib will now be able to raise the foundation of his workshop, so as to protect it from adverse weather conditions in the future. Thank you Mavens!
