ABOUT THIS ARTIST
I love the fact that the raw material I work with has no value to anybody, it can be very ugly looking, but I’m able to create new designs that make it fashionable and very likeable.”
“Today, we employ and train people from Delhi’s most disadvantaged communities to clear their streets of the plague of plastic bag waste. Once the waste bags are transformed into our products, they are sold for profit which can be spent in those same communities – on education and welfare programs.
“By buying one of our products you not only get to be a trendsetter with a beautiful, funky piece of high fashion – you will also be helping some of India’s poorest people, and its environment.
“Come, let’s work together for a better environment!”
