This Mother's Day, we celebrate our incredible artisan partners who are also mothers. Women who are earning an income to provide a healthy future for their children -- whether through nutritious meals, fees for school and uniforms, or other daily needs.
Many of the artisans who are employed with our fair trade partners complete their orders at home. This allows them to work on a piece throughout the day, while they keep an eye on their young children who are not in school and take care of other household responsibilities.
Mina Maharjan is one of over 2,000 home-based knitting artisans that our partner Kumbeshwar Technical School has trained and now employs. She tells us,
"I am very proud of my knitting. It is the first skill I've learned that I can use to earn money for my family."
Mina and the other home-based artisans with KTS make our knitwear items, including our Elizabeth Cardigan from our Spring Collection.
Join us in honoring these women and the opportunity they are creating for their families! Purchase a Mother's Day gift from Serrv for your own mom, sister, friend or daughter, and know you're contributing to continued success for artisan mothers around the world.
