About us

A Social Enterprise

“To establish and grow a socially responsible enterprise that offers high quality products and services and contributes to the general upliftment of society, specifically by generating employment for rural women and empowering them through social and financial independence.”

I Village brings to you products of contemporary use in soft furnishing, home decor, clothing and gifting, fused with a classic Indian vocabulary. Its essence is rooted in Indian designs, motifs and colors, inspired by our rich culture and heritage. It strikes a fine balance between contemporary style and classic charm. While all our products are thoughtfully designed at our Delhi studio, they are manufactured in villages of Bulandshahr (Uttar Pradesh – India), skillfully crafted using traditional techniques, skills and hand-based processes.

hand crafted

Handcrafted products are the mainstay of I Village’s social enterprise initiative. Women from villages are trained in traditional hand and machine based manufacturing processes, with special emphasis on embroidery.

They then manufacture products of contemporary use in soft furnishing, home decor, clothing and gifting that have a distinct ethnic touch. While the products are designed at our Delhi office, they are manufactured at our facilities in the village.

I Village runs a ‘Rural’ BPO that employs girls graduating from Pardada-Pardadi school. They are put through an intensive 3 month training module that educates them on the technical aspects in addition to lessons in voice modulation and diction.

They are trained in typing, MS-office, application softwares like CRM and ERP etc. Soft skills such as customer handling, answering queries, complaint resolution etc. are also taught during this training module.

The center has 25 well equipped workstations with voice support hardware and software, and a 5 mbps high speed internet lease line. This air-conditioned workplace also has a separate server space and 24×7 power back-up.

We have added an ‘aggarbatti’ (incense sticks) unit recently that has opened up another source of employment for women. The unit has a capacity of 10,000 incense sticks per day, which we intend to double in the coming months.

The incense sticks manufactured are sold to distributors who then add the fragrances and package them for wholesale or retail markets.

Suit Covers is an area of business large enough to warrant its own category. With clients such as blackberry apparel, we have orders round the year specifically for manufacture of Men’s suit covers. With stringent quality norms, we have teams of women dedicated to this task. In addition to cutting and sewing, these teams also comprise of smaller sub-teams of screen printing specialists.
