Jasbir was in school when she got married at the age of 14. Today, at 25 years of age, she has 3 daughters- 10, 9 & 2 year old. Her husband works as a daily wager. They have a big family to feed as Jasbir’s brother in law passed away a few years ago, leaving behind his family which has 4 kids. Between Jasbir & her husband, they have pledged to educate all 7 kids of the family. But more often than not, they fall short of meeting their kids’ stationery requirements and other expenses.
Jasbir has been doing Phulkari embroidery for last 10 years now. This she started doing to help her husband in managing the expenses of their big family. But she loves doing it now. She creates such lovely motifs on the cloth that they appear alive.
She just associated with JustPhulkari and we have decided to support her kids’ education by way of a fund that will be accumulated with the sale of these masterpieces created by her.
Whenever you buy from JustPhulkari, you contribute to the lives of many artisans like Jasbir and their families.
