The 1789 Fund has partnered with the Women's Skills Development Organization (WSDO) to bring you our latest products. WSDO is dedicated to beautiful, stylish items that are made ethically and responsibly. Our products are traditional and craft-based yet with a contemporary touch. We make the finest quality handwoven and handmade products using 100% cotton imported from India (mostly from fair trade raw material, but also from non-fair trade suppliers who are from disadvantaged and economically challenged backgrounds) and allo wool from nettle growing in the foothills of the Himalayas.
WSDO trains and employs women artisans that face difficult and significant social and economic hardships—being differently abled, abused, widowed, divorced, single, orphaned or of marginalized castes. These women are provided with free trainings on the different steps of making our products as well as on business management and various other skills related to making handicrafts. All of this is meant to enable them to plan for the future and become self-supportive. To read more about WSDO, please visit their website at wsdonepal.com.
