Bloom & Give
Textiles have been handmade in India for thousands of years. Artists here have been transforming natural cotton, silk and wool into things of beauty using highly intricate techniques of dyeing, weaving & embroidery.
The creative inspiration at Bloom & Give comes from discovering these heirloom traditions and carefully reinterpreting them to make contemporary products for everyday life.
In the developing world, education is the best way for a girl to escape the vicious cycle of childhood marriage, pre-teen pregnancy and domestic abuse. When she goes to school, she lives a healthier life, earns more, and makes her community stronger. Educated girls are crucial to erasing global poverty and minimizing conflict, and the world needs them now, more than ever!
10% of every purchase (~50% of their profits) goes directly to girls education programs. Each of these programs targets a specific obstacle in each community that prevents girls from going to school.
