THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Matr Boomie
Teatime can be anytime. Accessories like the Tea Time Bunting have helped over 2,700 Indian women quadruple their wages while working from home.
Matr Boomie partners with small groups of women artisans throughout the urban slums of India. These women face social limitations due to their male-dominated, conservative families who insist that they remain at home instead of helping support the family income.
Through training and crafting income, Matr Boomie empowers women with sustainable employment opportunities that allow them to earn money while tending to household responsibilities. Moreover, it gives them the chance to achieve financial independence and earn the respect of their community.
Your bunting is made from upcycled Indian saris, which are popular traditional garments that date back over 4,000 years.
