We serve over 1000+ customers every month.
And the force behind our Happy customers is the artisans & craftspeople at Linen Trail.
In honour of Indian Handicraft Week, we are sharing stories that are very close to our hearts.
Originally from Calcutta, Shabir moved to Thrissur 7 years ago. He has been practicing intricate embroidery for 25 years now.
He is a maestro of Kasuti, a traditional embroidery technique referring to handwork made of cotton thread.
We asked him what his biggest dream was and he said,
“I want to experiment more with my craft, make good designs & eventually set up my own unit of artisans to provide them a stable source of income.”
If we were to describe Deepa in a few sentences, we would say that she is a selfless woman who finds happiness in working towards her dreams.
Our creative director Shalini Anilkumar brought Deepa into the Linen Trail family. She wanted to provide her with a stable source of income & further the sustainability goals of Linen Trail.
Deepa soon mastered the craft of making upcycled products from excess fabric.
With a good source of income, Deepa was able to cater to the needs of her Autistic son & sustain her family.
Meet Girja, the superwoman behind our zero-waste packaging.
With every order that reaches you, she packs it in a cloth bag lovingly stitched by her.
When the 2020 lockdown hit, this superwoman took up the dual role of a homemaker & provider for her family.
When we asked what her biggest dream was, she humbly replied,
“To build a beautiful house for her kids & leave behind enough for her autistic son.”
