Meet Our Artisans

The RangSutra center is like my home. We come from different ethnic groups, but we work together and support each other. If a community like this were to spearhead society, it could be radically different in a better way.

Our artisan cluster is like a flowing river. I learn from elders and guide the younger ones; that’s why we never stagnate.

We’ve built our houses, educated our kids, and built the spirit to live and command respect. We’re an oasis of empowered women in this gigantic desert.

The opportunities we provide women to improve their craft, supplement their incomes, and participate actively in RangSutra’s supply chain help them gain the confidence to take ownership of their work and lives.
