Gulmeher, a women's collective of waste-pickers turned artisans that is committed to the green agenda and believes that creating beautiful products can go hand in hand with environmental and social development. We blend indigenous craft techniques with contemporary designs to bring our products to life. Gulmeher women handcraft each product using discarded flower petals arranged together laboriously to breathe life into the designs. Committed to creating goods that do good, sale of each of our products improves the lives of their makers by supporting their craft and providing opportunities for women coming out of waste-picking. Gulmeher is supported by Shakti Foundation, a registered society, under the Societies Act, with 80G exemption. Shakti Foundation supports various social initiatives including the education of underprivileged children, working with special children and decentralized waste management.
Inspired by the Tota-Maina Stories narrated by Naani and daadi, the Maina Rakhi makes for an ideal rakhi for your brother, sister or sister-in-law. The rakhi will remind you of the good old childhood days of fighting, teasing and yet unconditionally loving the very first friend you make. The tota-maina rakhi is made with cotton thread, flower petals and wooden beads.
At Gulmeher, we make Rakhis using natural materials like Cotton, Jute, Wooden beads and they are further embellished intricately with pressed flower petals.
