I am writing this mail on behalf of Grandmother India, a graphic design and branding studio based out of Mumbai. We have been approached by an international bag maker to design and partner in the production of their bags. As part of their social initiative, we are looking for an organisation that works for the empowerment of women in India, and one that can participate in the production of the bags. These products are meant to be hand-made by women that are poor and uneducated and from an extreme social background thus giving them an opportunity to learn skills and earn a living.
The bag though fairly simple in construction, is a highly finished product and a designer item made from a unique recyclable paper like material that needs to be machine-sewn with some handmade finishing to make the bag.
Kindly do let us know your interest in this project. We would be happy to know more about your organisation and the profile of the women group you are working with.
