Sasha Association for Craft Producers revives traditional craft techniques and supports at-risk artisan communities. Your purchase builds the skills of poor and marginalized groups, enhancing their access to markets and information, and increasing their income and productivity in a sustainable way. Sarba Shanti Ayog was created in 1978 to impact the lives of marginalized and disadvantaged producers in eastern India.
Established as a network of production, marketing, and capacity-building competencies, Sasha represents crafts producers from rural and semi-urban areas—mostly in eastern India—finding needed export outlets for their handcrafts.
Sasha's unique model of promoting grassroots participation and organizing groups into larger crafts consortiums allows producers to specialize in different aspects of textile styling—or to combine their skills to make unique products.
Workers from more than 70 craft groups benefit from health campaigns, improved working conditions, and stable incomes. Nearly 70% of the producers Sasha works with are women.
