More about Sujata Biswas
An alumnus of IIFT Delhi, I always felt something was missing in my job. Whenever I went back to visit my parents, I came across a lot of traditional weavers with whom I used to end up chatting and they used to pour their hearts out about lack of work and menial wages. Their amazing skills were awe-inspiring but I came to know that their livelihoods were a question mark in many cases. These conversations were etched deeply in my heart and prodded me on to a path of working to improve the livelihood of these disempowered communities. Taking a plunge into an industry with no prior experience or knowledge was one of the biggest risks I took in my career. Passion and belief in the weavers and the urge to make a difference in the lives of many such communities across India is what drove me to take the plunge. ‘The idea isn’t about working with a single weaver or a couple of weavers but adopting the entire family of weaver and empowering them. Thereby, making our own family bigger, one weaver at a time’.
