Revive Indian traditional art and craft forms.
In addition to sustainable social change, we passionately believe in deep-rooted travel, conversation, relationship, and a sensitivity towards our great nation.
Each perfectly handcrafted Curio collection directly empowers Indian artisans, weavers and their families.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. Work with artisans and weavers for curating India's most beautiful craft works.
2. Spread traditions, artworks and good times around the world.
3. Break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future.
EMPOWERING COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
Curio Cult is breaking the cycle of extreme poverty through sustainable job creation. Most Indian artisans, weavers and their families are living in extreme poverty and debt slavery. Curio Cult is working to empower them for earning a stable, healthy income through dignified work. This is the basis for a brighter future, built on sustainability.
THE FOUR PILLARS OF SUSTAINABILITY
A comprehensive approach to economic development, social development, social impact and conservation.
1. Ecologically sound
2. Social equity
3. Economic health
4. Cultural autonomy
OUR ROOTS :
Curio Cult was first imagined as an opportunity to transform Indian artisan and weaver community. Within one year of our launch, we’ve expanded our job creating mission to 25+ villages and began building the platform for a regional microeconomy to benefit similar impoverished tribal groups. Of more than 15 million artisans and weavers in India, 75% are marginalized and live in extreme poverty. Our vision is to support the growth of a sustainable economy and chart positive new paths for these communities.
SPREADING LASTING CHANGE:
Over the past year, we have worked to develop consistent sales channels, build partnerships for bulk orders and stabilize operations within the villages.
With our growth continuing to accelerate, we will be able to employ 100+ weavers on projects, we will also be able to continue to expand and provide training and ongoing employment to many other artisans and weavers. Through the establishment of Curio Cult as a global lifestyle brand, the artisans and weavers we partner with will be able to sustain this positive impact and continue to lay the foundation for a brighter future.
