Sarc is an artisan group in Jaipur, India that has been established for more than 23 years. The group employs people in multiple villages and helps them build sustainable incomes for their families and their futures. By working within the community, this group helps each artisan with their personal goals, like sending their children to good schools.
This artisan group also helps preserve the practices and traditional skills found throughout the participating villages and gives those skills new life in each textile created. Each article of clothing this group creates is a unique work of art produced by the skilled handiwork of multiple artisans.
It really does take a village to contribute to each item’s beauty. Every step in the process—from making the fabric, stitching it together, adding embroidery, dyeing the fabric and applying any number of unique prints and designs—highlights the skills and beautiful traditions found throughout the 25+ villages involved.
This site is WONDERFUL in so many ways. They provide work for people in need that have the skills to do some quality work and this site gives them a place to market their skills. They use quality materials. I've purchased SEVERAL items of clothing and jewelry and housewares from them and they are ALL LOVELY and I've been wearing the clothes for YEARS and I do wear them a LOT b/c they are my FAVORITES. I do treat them with tender loving care to make sure they stay LOVELY -- and the washer and I are STILL not getting along, SO, hand washing and line drying my favorites is the way I go.
