Seeing people... linking arms with women... living life fully and with open hands. These are just a few of my mantras that I try to live out through my life and my business. I have been blessed enough to find partners in this business that allow me to do just that. You may already know that Basha was the first supplier in my story at Kantha Bae.

.) As my shop continued to grow, the Lord opened another door - in Northern India this time. Just over a year ago, I became acquainted with an incredible team, and one amazing young woman, in particular. It was so apparent that we both needed each other, and that it was a perfect fit. Here is more of their story.
The beautiful young woman I mentioned has brought so much hope to her village with her kind heart and bravery. She is truly an inspiration. She has dreams in her eyes, love in her voice, courage in her heart, and confidence in her walk. So much love for her and the heart behind why she started in this business. 💛
Y'all, she is so incredibly invested in this business. She loves knowing when you all are excited about new designs and when launches are successful. She and her team have even sent toys for my kids in the bottom of boxes of product. I mean, seriously?? She is so thoughtful and fiercely talented... I don't know where we would be without her and her team.
Because of you, she has been able to employ people from surrounding villages. She has been able to upgrade their facilities and provide work for women who are stay at home mothers. She has been able to keep skilled artisans working in their craft, and recognized for their handiwork. I am in love with traditional techniques, and she teaches me more of the history and process all the time. I love sharing these things with this KB community... I am just so honored to have them as a part of this story.
