This collection is designed in collaboration with Gurukulam. It involves straps made from cloth hand woven by students of Gurukulam.
Gurukulam was founded in March 2019 by four mothers of children with special needs. The Integrated Centre for Children with Special Needs is training students for open schooling, vocational and life skills, through extracurricular activities. They also prepare young adults for gainful employment in a way that capitalizes on their skills and interests.
The Centre caters to children with special needs (CWSN) who have been diagnosed with intellectual disability (Autism, Cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, ADHD et al), and are in the age group of 6 to 30 years.
They are trained in weaving on the loom, block printing T-shirts, bags, saris and stationery products.
