A Stitch Against Waste. A Stitch for Freedom.
We are a social enterprise in New Delhi which up-cycles waste fabric generated from apparel scraps to create handcrafted decorations by Afghan woman refugees in India. Our products are eco-friendly, support sustainable incomes that helps in building communities of artisans. SilaiWali carefully handpicks beautiful Indian cotton waste fabric to develop a line of simple yet sophisticated rag dolls. Each piece is designed, cut, stitched and embroidered in our studio in Delhi. Our home-decor and festival ornaments are all handmade pieces, each one being unique.
