Honoring our lead artisan, Elizabeth, who I've been working with for 5 years. Originally from Manipur, "Elle" oversees all aspects of sourcing & production from our small studio in New Delhi. I had the chance to meet Elle when visiting a small artisan group working out of the back of a church in 2016.
Since then, we've collaborated via What'sApp to create Corda. Together we've surmounted many challenges, as the path has not always been clear and easy for us - from wrangling our sources & locations to navigating the past two difficult years. I feel extremely fortunate to have met her.
Dedicated, and growing more confident in her abilities every day, Elle's talent, craftsmanship & attention to detail contribute greatly to the quality of our work.
I was immediately impressed by how quickly M learned our process & design techniques, understanding all of the little tweaks we make to achieve their shape. Three years later, M has grown so much, and her technique is flawless.
I am grateful M joined us when she did, and has stayed with us despite the ongoing challenges of the past two years. Stay tuned for some new designs we collaborated on - coming this spring & summer!
