Keeping Our Commitment
MarketPlace exists because of the artisan cooperatives and a commitment to empower women. The pandemic has made everything more difficult in India, from finding supplies to shipping and every step in between. One day they can find a supplier for buttons, but the next day that area is shut down. The women and staff in Mumbai are taking on the challenge, as each day brings a new restriction or problem. Unlike some brands, we cannot simply look to other countries for easier sources.
