PROJECT - ORGANIC KNITTING

TOOCKIES INDIA

Here at Toockies India, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts.

In October 2008, a successful project for rural women in West Bengal was started. Collaborating with Sinko Corp, USA, these women became involved in making an organic, zero-waste dishcloth and many other fantastic products. 

The brand is called Tookies and its products are today distributed through Lavinia Trade in Europe. The project has provided a livelihood for more than 800 women over the course of time. 

Today, the women who are hand knitting these great products live in a tribal village near Kolkata. The beauty of this project is that it allows women to make a living from home enabling them to take care of their children. 

Some women have opened a bank account for the first time in their lives, thanks to this project! With the income they earn, these women are empowered to secure a better future for their families.
