In 2011, Kriti had completed its first batch of tailoring training and the successful trainees wanted some work. Thus, Kriti started production activities with a group of 7 enthusiastic ladies in a small room inside the slum. We started by making patchwork quilts and bags by upcycling fabric end bits given to us by Suraiyya ji, from the house of Kalamkari. Today, there are over 60 women working across the different livelihood activities and earning regular income through their work.
