Daughters of India was created from our love of travel and inspired by the incredibly talented hand block artists in India who make each piece and carry through this traditional form of Indian hand block print making. 

At the heart of Daughters of India we work on empowering Indian women in the workplace, to have the capabilities to be able to work and support their families. 

Women empowerment
in the village

Our small making facility is tucked away in a village outside of Jaipur, India. There was a need for women’s empowerment, and since the very opening, our friend and owner of the facility, Anushree, has been offering employment to women along with free education and job training. We also work extremely closely with Avneet, who helps us in every way possible and works compassionately alongside the other 80% women in the production facility. This is something we feel strongly about at Daughters of India HQ and we continuously support and help build this initiative. Originally the Anushree, who is female, set up the facility, pushing every boundary within her culture. She was frowned upon by family and friends. Today, through her success she is bringing other women along the journey and slowly the shift to women empowerment is taking place. 

Sewing the seed project

Sewing the Seeds is a women’s empowerment initiative that utilises creativity and enterprise to break the cycle of poverty for Indian women. The organisation has supplied 130 women with sewing machines and training. We are proud to be linked closely with this organisation and donate to this initiative to help women receive an education and training. We now have a full time team sewing our tote bags, keeping women in employment and training.
