Our supplier of metal crafts is based in Jodhpur, a city in the Thar Desert, Rajasthan. The business employs 6 people who enjoy good wages and good working conditions. The metal artefacts themselves are made by master craftsmen in their own premises in the city of Jodhpur and this income supplements regular income from agriculture, which forms the backbone of the economy in most of rural India. Agriculture itself is dependent on the monsoon as there are no perennial rivers in the Thar Desert so working on the land is not a reliable source of regular income in itself. Our supplier is involved in charitable work and also provides employment to one disabled person.
