Village Experience Salad Grabbers

Artisan Organization: The Village Experience

Country: India

Women around the world struggle for a work-life balance, a sustainable way of both caring for their families and providing for them. This was the struggle for Jayanti (pictured middle with her daughter)—to care for her three children and find work. And it had to be work she could do from home, something that flowed with the rhythm of motherhood.

The Village Experience, the cooperative responsible for carving your salad grabbers, answered Jayanti’s call. A seasoned woodworker, today Jayanti carves soft neem wood in the space of her home and presence of her young ones.

The newest addition to your salad kit represents recognition of the importance of women’s participation in the workplace, while maintaining the importance of their place in the home. Each role, after all, has something to offer the other. Offer these beautiful hands to your table, and gather some salad in style.
