stitch you buy provides financial relief to faceless, invisible
seamstresses whose nimble and work-weary fingers give concrete shape
to Sharbari’s designing dreams. They are all dedicated to
Sharbari and earn their livelihood working for her.
Her original motivation was to do something independently. But later,
while borrowing help to do the stitching she realized that she could
do her bit for the larger welfare of the community she lived in.
Though the work is painstaking and laborious, it does not call for
any specialized skills. So this offers scope to unskilled and unlettered
women who need to earn. Over the years, they have developed a strong
relationship and Sharbari pays the girls roughly 25% of the labeled
price of the garment.
