We are involved in reviving Killimangalam mats, a unique variety of hand crafted mats recognised by UNESCO with its crafts seal but struggling to provide even INR 100 per day to those involved in the production. Currently there’s only one person involved in the craft production and we have taken up the mentoring of the unit. We provide grants worth INR 400,000 a year to support the initiative into developing as a sustainable business model.
Travellers get to visit the workshop, take lessons and can place order for unique mats to take home as souvenirs.
