Aham bhumika is an NGO (Non Government Organisation) based in Bhopal, a city in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. It has been set up by a diverse group of artists, housewives, engineers, tourist guides, teachers and government employees, who work for the betterment of the underprivileged in rural areas of India.
The charity mainly works in two villages on the outskirts of Bhopal, with an aim to enable rural women earn a livelihood and be self sufficient. As part of Aham Bhumika’s embroidery project, more than 30 skilled rural women artisans, have thus far been trained and employed to create some truly unique and beautiful products including sarees, tote bags and cushion covers.
We at The Elephant Head, are excited to be a part of this initiative and bring to you some products from Aham Bhumika's unique range. We are absolutely besotted by their work and hope you love them as much as we do.
