Artisan: Fabric artisans in India
Kailash Bahan, age 42 (shown in the yellow sari) and Ganeshi Bai, age 38 (in the pink sari, far right) are part of an all-women cooperative in western Rajasthan, India. Having learned the art of hand appliqué from fellow village women, they are now passing on the art to the next generation.
The cooperative currently has 272 women practicing hand appliqué, living in small villages through the region. Once a week they travel to the cooperative's headquarters to collect more materials, submit their work, and receive payment.
Earnings from their handicrafts help not only their own families, but the entire community. As a result of the increased flow of income to the region, there are now medical centers providing basic health facilities, electricity produced from solar energy, evening schools for kids, and vocational colleges for women.
