“Kala Raksha” means “Protecting art”. Kala Raksha Vidyalaya is a school in north western India that provides vocational training in the traditional art forms to the local youth. The aim is for young people to practice and preserve traditional Kutch embroidery.

Your purchase of this clutch provides direct financial help to support this school, which nurtures many of the art forms used to create these products. Furthermore, it provides the artisans with information necessary to create more fashionable and marketable products, so they have a better chance to compete against big factories.
