My first producer visit was in December 2005 and I was overwhelmed by the need for people to earn a living. India is a vast and beautiful country of contrasts – it is inspiring and appalling in almost equal measure.
If we in the affluent West think we have an unequal society, this is as nothing to the inequality in India. I found myself saying that I would find these women some work and so this is what I have tried to do. I visited their villages and spent time developing new products and exchanging ideas, and sampled rather a lot of very fine curries.
We have worked together for ten years now and continue to collaborate in bringing you the best in very fine crochet.
