Sakhi Kunj creates empowerment for women in India by providing them access to materials, training and career potential through the creation of beautiful jewelry, arts, crafts and textiles. The women at Sakhi Kunj individually hand craft each unique bracelet, mala, coin purse, yoga mat bag and other craft items. Our products are each lovingly made by the women, and every product has a special meaning and story.
We particularly specialize in spiritual mala necklaces, which are made with traditional Indian materials like Rudraksha prayer beads, wooden Tulsi beads, Lava and other stone beads and charms. These malas are lovingly dipped in the sacred Ganga (Ganges) River. Our bracelets are also made from these traditional materials and dipped in the Ganga.
Our yoga mat bags and other fabric handcrafts are made from recycled Indian saris and repurposed fabric purchased from temples.
The sale of these products supports the women in their livelihoods and funds further training for more women to join and learn how to create these beautiful handcrafts. Please email us for more information or if you are interested in purchasing some of our products.
Sakhi Kunj is an alliance of women living in the slums of Delhi and surrounding rural areas. Our mission is to support these women for equal opportunities through access to employment, financial assistance, healthcare, and education for themselves, their families, and their communities.
