Today we’re introducing our new silver basket collection on The Little Market and welcoming our newest artisan partner, JeevanKala.
JeevanKala, a social enterprise based out of Nepal and a member of the Fair Trade Federation, is dedicated to supporting artisans and their economic development. The organization currently employs approximately 200 artisans, and many of them are single mothers, widows, and individuals with disabilities. Many of the artisans have been affected by the caste system in Nepal and are considered “untouchables,” which is an oppressed group of individuals. With JeevanKala’s support, the female artisans can primarily work from home and have flexible schedules. JeevanKala, which translates to “Art for Life” in Nepali, developed out of a crafts program of Himalayan HealthCare. Himalayan HealthCare is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable organization that has operated in Nepal for 25 years.
We are very inspired by our artisan partners and are proud to work with artisans at JeevanKala. Take a look below to see how to style these beautiful silver baskets in your home and office space.
These silver bowls are extra special because not only are they artisan-made, but they are made from clean repurposed snack wrappers. The silver is the inside of the snack wrappers, while the pops of color you might see woven in the baskets are the outside of the wrappers.
