What’s the project story?

Reshma is a housewife who used from time to time to do some tailoring work at home, like creating dresses! Once she heard of the Nook, she decided to step in to try to launch her own activity by herself.

How does she interact with the workshop?

Reshma comes in the lab twice a week. Thanks to the Nook, she learnt on Youtube how to sew with different techniques. That’s how she created “Umbrella lehenga”: broad and long skirts made out of Sari fabrics.

What’s next?

Reshma aims to learn more designs thanks to the free wifi access provided by the Nook. Then she’ll be able to get contracts with the village inhabitants to sell her creations.
