HANDMADE AND SIGNED WITH LOVE BY EACH ARTISAN IN INDIA
SKILL: HAND SEWING + WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT
MATERIALS: 100% ORGANIC COTTON CANVAS
Each item in the Anchal collection is hand stitched by women in India. Through a holistic approach to empowering women through training, benefits and education, Anchal provides women with opportunities to support their families through design and crafting, rather than turning to the sex trade. On top of that, Anchal’s small-scale techniques reduced the environmental impact of the industrial textile industry. What’s not to love?
The stitch by stitch project based in Ajmer, India has provided over 200 jobs for women in hand-quilting, machine tailoring, and hand-dying.
WHY GREY DESIGN LOVES ANCHAL'S PILOWS:
We loved everything about these- the mission, the quality, the craftsmanship, and most noticeably the design. These pillows are modern, clean, hand-stitched, and well made. We also needed variety to mix and match for ease, these pillows are able to do just that.
GREY DESIGN PLACEMENT TIPS:
This pillow also looks great with the grey turkish towel and the reclaimed barnwood triangle shelf with mason jar planter.
