Primarily working on a decentralised model, Peoli engages about sixty women artisans who are looking for opportunities to support their families economically by a means that lets them work from their homes.This framework guides our entire design process at the studio, where it is our constant effort is to develop products which are easy to interpret and process by the makers, and in return let them earn a sustainable livelihood, infusing a sense of pride and confidence in the humble craft they produce.
Attending to every detail of the production from raw materials to spinning, natural dyeing, weaving and knitting, the community of Peoli artisans make their work live as part of the Uttarakhand landscape.The women artisans of the hills employ their dexterous hands to create clothes and accessories from the fabric of our organisation.A similar synthesis is applied in crafting the products where local craft skills like handloom weaving and knitting are ingeniously merged with hand embroidery, beadwork, shibori, etc.
As an atelier, our attempt is to propagate aesthetics in the local craft vocabulary by allowing the craftsmen to experiment and explore their skills with pure and natural materials, bringing them a dimension closer to the actual craft tradition of the area that has probably gone extinct due to the invasive synthetic material culture.
We, at Peoli nurture the hands, and the hearts of people to provide a fair means of livelihood. Respecting and improving skills we are sharing a journey that proposes to be sustainable.
