Handmade 

Our weaving partner, Bhuttico is one of the oldest weaving societies and we are proud to have collaborated with them for our woolen scarf creations. Bhutti Weavers have been renowned for handloom weaving. Before India got independence, a group of 12 progressive handloom weavers joined hands and registered a Handloom Weavers Cooperative in 1944. Since then, the cooperative has been weaving beautiful textiles and has been given various National and International awards like the National Award Gold, Handloom Weavers National Award, Internationally recognized Woolmark certification for their quality craftsmanship. 

Who is Dr Pragati Singh?

After working in the field of maternal, child and reproductive health for several years, Pragati realized that several women came to her with problems like they did not want to have sexual relationship with their husbands or partners. This triggered her to research more into asexuality. In time, Singh formed the online community "Indian Aces" in 2014, India's first platform for addressing asexual people and asexuality. She was featured in the BBC list among the most inspiring women in 2019.
