WELCOME TO SADHNA
Sadhna was established in 1988 to provide alternative income to women in Udaipur and Rajsamand districts of South Rajasthan. Handicraft was introduced to the women to ensure they can generate an income while working from home. Patchwork,
Appliqué and Tanka embroidery skills were mastered to build a strong artisan community of 700 rural, tribal and urban women artisans.
Sadhna’s products are handmade and fair trade certified, sold in national and international markets. Some of our long term partners include Fabindia, Tribes India and Mata Traders. Sadhna has ensured income with social security for all her artisans through provision of Provident Fund and Employee’s State Insurance, education scholarships for artisan children, health checks and distress fund for artisan families. Many of Sadhna’s artisans today are women who are confident, independent decision makers and carving a place for themselves in their families and communities.
