Herbal Soap Bar
Each soap in this collection was hand crafted using ancient Indian ayurvedic techniques. The fruity, all natural ingredients of these soaps mean that incorporating these invigorating scents into the daily routine will provide an invigorating boost with each wash. In addition to the stimulation of the senses the scents provide, the soap itself is made of vegetable glycerin and free of detergents and phosphates. Each soap is individually wrapped in beautiful block-printed upcycled fabric, making them perfect for immediate hassle-free gifting.
‘SETU’ in Sanskrit means ‘the bridge’. As indicated from the name, `SETU-The Bridge to Artisans’ acts as a bridge between the underprivileged/marginalized artisans and the international/affluent markets, at the same time, working for social, economic and environmental well-being of the artisan communities.
Most of the artisan communities across the world are rich with local, traditional art forms, but lack the knowledge and means for access to markets. We take up the role of bridging this gap and provide them with the necessary resources to produce functional goods using their traditional art. These products are then promoted in international markets as a means to achieve economic and social development for these communities.
Fair trade practices are used to give our artisans self sustainability, self-confidence, and pride in their art. We are working to improve their overall state of development including health care, education and infrastructure. We also try to use as many natural and recycled/reused materials/processes as we can to make our products environmentally responsible.
