SilaiWali is a social enterprise in New Delhi that up-cycles waste fabric generated from apparel scraps to create handcrafted decorations by Afghan woman refugees in India. Their products are eco-friendly and support sustainable incomes that help in building communities of marginalised artisans in observance of Fair Trade principles.
Silaiwali works with a two-pronged mission: Environment and Solidarity. Each piece is stitched by hand by women who have fled from Afghanistan to India. The work allows 70 women to earn a living and form a new community.
