  • “Before, I did odd jobs in the village and did not know my income from one day to the next. The pottery gave me training and now I have worked here for seven years. My children go to school and college which makes me happy.” – Jyothi, potter

    Our short coffee cups are made at a fair trade pottery in South East India that employs 13 women and 12 men. All the employees earn a reliable monthly income as well as receiving gifts and bonuses for Diwali and other seasonal festivals. The pottery has transformed the community and the founder has even opened a school for local children.
