The traditional craft of woodcarving plays an important role for many artisan communities in small towns and agricultural villages in north central India. Each artisan uses hand tools to skillfully carve blocks of sustainably harvested wood into fine treasures.
Matrboomie's woodcraft partner artisans belong to collectives in the region that provide basic services and development solutions to enable self-sufficiency, including healthcare and education. Literacy rates and income opportunities are quite limited in the area, so woodcraft production is vital for community livelihoods. Most woodcraft artisans are men and some women work in finishing and production assembly. Matrboomie's main focus is for their continued development in sustainable income generation, skills development and raw material allocation.
Matrboomie began in 2006 with the mission of creating opportunities for women and minorities to realize their creative, economic and leadership potential. Since then they have grown their network to empower 20,000 artisans in 40 partner communities throughout India.
