WHO MADE IT:
A team in India, comprised of four artisan cooperatives and over 6,000 women in a village outside of Delhi and in the Uttar Pradesh region.
By providing women with health insurance, educational scholarships, and business trainings, Team India supports women’s development both socially and economically.
Team India provides health insurance and educational scholarships for its artisans, directly investing women's rights and social mobility.
They also work hard to help women break into the job market, providing community trainings on business and vocational skills to women of different experience levels.
We commit to long term, reliable trade agreements that allow cooperatives to hire more women and make proactive business decisions. Team India can count on us to place continuous orders at consistent prices, and that trust results in more jobs and more job security for women.
We recognize the difference between living wage and minimum wage, and we pay our artisans more than 2x the minimum wage in Delhi. Uttar Pradesh minimum wage: 445 rupees per day ($6.88 USD/day), compared to Fair Anita wage: 800+ rupees per day ($12.50 USD+). The minimum wage in India is also seen as a livable wage, but most workers in India aren't employed through the formal economy, so they don't even receive minimum wage for their work.

Made by : Pushpanjali Fair Trade
Pushpanjali is a fair trade organization based in Agra, India. Founded in 1982, it started with 5 producers; over the years the number of producers has increased considerably. Their mission is to improve the living conditions of local craft producers by empowering them through sustainable work, fair wages, profit sharing and also by providing credit.
Pushpanjali produces scarves, bags, accessories, holiday ornaments, nativities and photo frames. Promoting the cultural wealth and identity and recognizing local producers craft mastery is also at the heart of what Pushpanjali does, as a key enabler for producers’ empowerment. The Pushpanjali scarf production team is composed of 12 women all living in the same area of Agra, in Ajam Para. They started working with Pushpanjali 3 years ago, and got a chance to generate an income by themselves, which is extremely rare in that area for women. They are in charge of quality control for the scarves, of cutting the extra threads and knotting the scarves. When orders are there, they work every weekday while their children are at school, representing 6 to 7 months of full time work for them.
Pushpanjali supports educational and medical programs in rural villages, allowing girls to attend school who otherwise could not afford it. When being asked what Pushpanjali did for them, the increased financial autonomy comes at first. With the fair wage they receive for their work, the Ajam Para women are able to contribute to their family needs, especially with clothes. They have good working conditions, and if they have one request for improvement, it is to ask for business growth and increased orders, so they can increase further their contribution to their family livelihoods.
