About the work

The company promotes a decentralized textile value chain generating livelihoods of rural women through Solar Charkha. It purchases yarn from a network of women using solar charkas – domestic spinning wheels used primarily for spinning cotton into yarn. The yarn is then woven into fabric by Greenwear’s ecosystem of 400 weavers.
