Shrishti (meaning creation) is a “freedom brand” committed to marketing and distribution of products that transform communities one life at a time. These products are made in the impoverished villages of West Bengal, India. This business provides income generating opportunities for women at risk of trafficking. A Shrishti Sale provides people an opportunity to be involved in anti-trafficking efforts. Empowering people to “Do Justice” in practical ways. Shrishti Products is a 501c(3) company.

West Bengal is a primary source area for trafficking young girls and women. Large numbers of women/girls are disappearing. They are being sold into prostitution in Kolkata, Mumbai, Delhi, and some outside of India. Poverty and the low value of girls and women in the society contribute significantly to this evil. Providing ways for the women to use their skills to make marketable products under the label “Shrishti” is bringing new life and hope for those in at-risk communities.

Shrishti Items include:
Bag – tote, shoulder, cross body, and cosmetic
Sari covered large & pocket-sized journals with handmade paper
Pencil pouches
Headbands
Upcycled sari quilts
Jewelry

Handcrafted greeting cards
