- The 3,000 year old historic city of Panipat in North India, famously called “the city of weavers” is home to thousands of artisans where the weavers have mastered the skill of weaving thick cotton & jute yarn into beautiful textiles. The thick weave holds up well to wear and tear, and yet has a soft feel to it. Its a labor-intensive process that often requires several iterations on a loom followed by hand-knotting and embroidery.

Bloom & Give are deeply invested in their artisan communities & co-ops. They thoroughly vet all our suppliers and visit them several times a year, paying special attention to these areas: safe working conditions, exclusion of child labor, fair wages, non-discrimination, freedom of employment, and right to an association (union). They only work with suppliers that demonstrate pride in the quality of their work, and share their views on societal and workplace behavior.
As a brand they also donate 10% of all sales to programs that send girls to school in rural India. In the developing world, education is the best way for women & girls to escape a vicious cycle of childhood marriage, pre-teen pregnancy and domestic abuse. When she goes to school, she lives a healthier life, earns more, and makes her community stronger. Educated girls like her are crucial to erasing global poverty and minimizing conflict, and the world needs them now, more than ever! Each quarter, Bloom & Give seeks out worthy projects and partners to invest in. These are typically highly effective local non-profit organizations or innovative schools or in rare cases, a single inspiring individual that's re-shaping the entire community through sheer will and passionate belief.
