"I never knew my voice could also matter in my family "
Rupali Chavan, 32
I only started working after my husband lost his job. Initially, it was quite challenging to manage family and work. I always wanted to help out my family in every possible way. Helping them financially with my earnings was a part of it. Working here, I have enrolled my son in an English medium school so that he gets a good education. My colleagues at work are no less than a family for me, they have supported me through thick and thin. My work life has made me confident and I feel extremely happy about it. I like to recycle waste through my collection. I use fabric cutting waste generated in garment production in my designs.
Bidri artwork is a form of metal handicrafts, developed in 14th century. It is named after Bidar, a city in Karnataka where it is widely practiced. Bidri products are made from an oxidized alloy of zinc and copper inlaid with pure silver. It is prized as a symbol of wealth. To Create this Collection artisan needs to follow eight stage process: The eight stages are moulding, smoothening by file, designing by chisels, engraving by chisel and hammer, pure silver inlaying, smoothening again, buffing, and finally oxidizing by soil and ammonium chloride. In this collection, the soil plays a very important role. It is believed to possess special properties that help oxidization giving it a beautiful blackened appearance.
