YuraJawn + ConneXions

The work we do at ConneXions is focused on empowering women, from these local slum communities. Income generation through dignified employment is the cornerstone of our work. Women come to ConneXions and are taught skills (or utilize existing skills) to produce beautiful high-quality products. The income they earn helps them to become increasingly self-sufficient. Their confidence and self-esteem grow as they are empowered to improve the quality of their lives and those that depend on them.

Poverty in the rural areas surrounding Kolkata sees thousands move to the city in the hope of securing work. Most don’t find the prosperous future they were longing for. Instead, they are forced to take up residence in substandard accommodation in poor areas of the city. With limited education, no financial resources and an abundance of people willing to exploit their situation, day to day living is a challenge.

This mask represents a collaboration between three organizations committed to making the world a better place through women’s economic empowerment. Each mask has been stitched by hand by our women artisans from Kolkata, India. With love and care they craft these pieces using the indigenous Kantha stitch, that creates a unique and beautiful pattern which also sits softly and comfortably on your face. When you wear this mask, we hope you will remember that your purchase helped a woman in Kolkata who is trying to create a better life for herself and her family.
