CIBART Training

We went to a remote village in Gujarat, India to develop some new products for a company providing employment for a marginalized indigenous group there.  We were amazed by their talent despite having no concept of basic measuring in fractions.  We stayed 2 weeks and developed 10 products that were a great exercise in patience and persistence.  Another great learning lesson exchanged between artisan and designer.

Soon, we will be bringing these products and parts to production.
