Scenes from IndiaRice Card Straw Set

Handmade by craftswomen in Kolkata, India, these rice straw patterns depict local Indian scenes. 




In keeping with the vision of William Carey's focus on work and human dignity, "WorldCrafts trains young, underprivileged women from Kolkata’s slums to produce quality paper crafts.  Presently five women work together in a partnership. From the sales of their products they pay for the raw materials, overhead, and their own piecework. If they generate a profit, they share it equally among themselves" (WorldCrafts ConneXions).
