LOCATION: Mumbai, India
OWNERS: Rooh Collective
At Rooh Collective, we are proud to say that we own our very own studio space in Mumbai India, run and managed by Meenu (Akshay’s mum) and Shashi. Together, they drive our vision of rebalancing the gender gap, by providing equal opportunities for women and men in a culturally and traditionally driven society such as India. We are very proud to have a female-run studio and these women are not only family but a core part of our business.
Design and production are such an exciting part of our process, and inside our Mumbai studio, our artisans work collaboratively to make our beautiful pieces by hand. The space is clean and comfortable to work in, well maintained and safe, where each artisan has their own workstation and access to stable amenities.
FAIR WORKING CONDITIONS
NO CHILD LABOUR
Each piece designed by us here in Australia is produced in-house in our studio, where we proudly adhere to fair living wages, sustainable manufacturing practices and ensure our artisans are safe and happy.
It’s so important to us to provide employment for these talented women and men, giving them an income to support their families whilst showcasing their skills in such a traditional art as dress-making. Our team members are all treated with the utmost love and respect and we cherish them as part of Rooh Collective.
