A not-for-profit social enterprise working to empower and employ women from marginalised communities in India, Bangladesh and Nepal.
We preserve local skills and traditions, to have a positive environmental impact, and to empower women from marginalised communities by providing meaningful and stable employment along with fair living wages.
We focus on upcycling traditional sari fabric and ethically sourcing materials to create beautiful products. We aim to preserve local traditional techniques, such as block-printing and kantha-stitching. Our artisans breathe new life into secondhand sari fabric by turning it into beautiful products that are unique, zero waste and socially impactful.
Shakti.ism partners with grassroots women's and girls' NGOs, ensuring fair working conditions, safe, supportive working and community spaces, and encouraging entrepreneurship to break the cycle of poverty.
Shakti means 'power' in Hindi and other South Asian languages.
Shakti.ism signifies female energy being put into action, ‘women’s power-ism’, or women’s empowerment.
Designed in London
Ethically handmade in India and Bangladesh
