after breakfast and sorting through fabric scraps for our workshop starting on january 6, we packed our bags and left for jaipur. manju introduced us to the recycled sari vendors we’ve been using. colleen and i were both excited by the colors and variety. by supporting these vendors, who seemed to be mostly low-income women and girls, our social impact extends beyond the artisans to other communities as well.
then we spent the afternoon at the anoothi/vatsalya office (where we’re also staying), updating our blog and preparing for the upcoming workshop. tonight jaimala and hitesh have invited us over for dinner which will give us another opportunity to get to know each other and deepen our collaboration.
