Aarohana EcoSocial Developments
Upcycled-handwoven products from waste plastic by tribal women
Aarohana EcoSocial Developments upcycled waste plastic using traditional handlooms to weave it and make upcycled-handwoven products. The process is sustainable and used manual labour from tribal women to enable livelihood opportunities for them. The products were sold in India and all around the world, online and offline.
