Generating equitable income using craft & commerce.
Indian Yards Foundation is a social enterprise up-skilling women from rural & indigenous communities of The Nilgiris into fine first generation artisans and subsequently enabling them into producer clusters. We use only natural fibres to handcraft a wide variety of products using craft forms such as macrame, crochet, quilting, needle work, embroidery, sashiko & applique.
We are aligned to SDG 12 established by UN which promotes responsible consumption & production. The yarn we use is high quality natural cotton and the wooden components we use are sourced from responsibly managed forest. Each of our products are handmade by women from marginalised communities. We source most of our raw material from within the region thereby reducing carbon footprint and our packaging is eco-friendly.
