STORY
In the heart of India, Hyderabad is a high tech city but is surrounded by several villages where men and women harvest jute and weave it into sturdy bouclette fabric. With hand carved wood stamps they decorate cotton fabric with traditional designs. Kalmakari is an ancient art of fabric printing using vegetable dyes. It is practiced by certain families in Andhra Pradesh, India. Pomegranate peel, iron scrap, turmeric, Jaggrey and salt are used to make the vegetable dyes. The cloth is soaked in Myrabalam juice before printing. After printing each color the fabric is boiled using leaves, flowers and barks and sundried to resume printing. The printed fabric is finally washed in the flowing waters of river Krishna. The flow of the water determines the brightness of the colors. The fabric is then sun-dried and ready to be crafted.  

Green Jute is led by Manjula and Reji, who had moved to the US and become successful business people but knew they wanted to go back to their homeland to help their people come out of poverty.
