About three years ago, I met these boys, some of whom had dropped school, some who were just getting dragged from one class to the other without gaining any knowledge, some disillusioned, some were just those rowdy para boys; they would wander uselessly, had no purpose in life, didn't know where they were going or even understood that they could do something in their lives, build it, make it better than how they had lived. And I met this one girl who was diligently doing what she could do to escape the toils of her lives.
Three years, a multitude of challenges, depressing periods, loads of counselling, lots of trust, lot of work down, today those same people have worked together to make more than 200 hand-crafted bangles in less than 2 weeks, their first order of about 10k.
And we have been able to not only reach out to people in Kolkata, but far off in Bangalore, Pune, Gurgaon and Delhi, all thanks to my volunteers who think about and work for freeing these people from the clutches of countless difficulties and gifting them personal and financial independence and a life of pride.
Now, that's how I celebrate Independence. Imagine what we could do if you came forward too.
Gorgeous and timeless.

Neden? dediğinizi duyar gibiyiz.
Tarasımlarımızın çizimlerini fırça ile yapıyoruz kısacası emek veriyoruz. Dünya da bu işi çoğunlukla baskı üzerine yapıyorlar biz sanat emektir diyoruz,zamanımızı bu işe ayırıyoruz.
Bizi özel kılanda bu,porselen ve seramik üzerine fırça ile çizilmiş ve renklendirilmiş portreyi sadece biz çiziyoruz. Tek ürünümüz bardak olmıyacak tabi ki. kendimizi geliştirmek için küçük bir ara verdik.Tabiki siparişlerimiz devam etmekte. Yeni ürünlerimizle yakın da karşınızda olacağız

Sampai jumpa di acara INSIDE selanjutnya!
In Kumano City there are a pretty number of handmade Japanese craft shops. One of this is Mukai Futon mise (in Kinomoto area, 684). The owner, Mukai Hirotaka, is a real artist of the cotton. He realizes handmade futon and various pretty modern and traditional accessories (as furoushiki, warazouri, otedama) with a special type of cotton called ichigi momen (市木木綿). The realization of this cotton dates back to the Meiji period when looming technology was introduced in Japan. In his golden period there were 45 cotton fabric manufacturers but due to the mass production started in the Showa period many manufacturers closed. Today, Mr Mukai Hirotaka is the only one that still realize this special cotton. Ichigi momen has the high reputation to be very soft to the skin and it is registered as Mie prefecture’s traditional handcraft. You can have a look of his work on his website: kaiminmukai.jimdo.cor searching on Facebook the name of the shop 向井ふとん店🔸
