Ziyada (Zee-yah-duh) means more—more hope, more help, more happiness, more health—for you and for our world. Ziyada exists to provide meaningful employment in a safe, loving environment for people caught in the devastating cycle of extreme poverty in North India, and in the process, to bring you more quality and beauty through each good they create.
At Ziyada, every woman is trained as an artisan in hand-spinning yarn, embroidery and sewing. Every employee earns a fair, living wage for their work, has access to health care for themselves and their children, and enjoys a work environment where people are loved, skills are developed, and ethical practices are affirmed. With every purchase you make, you are part of the process of bringing more hope, more help, more happiness, and more health to these artisans.
