  • CRAFT TECHNIQUE: Camel Wool Weaving

     

    CAMEL CHARISMA is a social enterprise that develops, produces and markets products from Rajasthan’s camel herds. All products are natural and eco-friendly, coming from herded or freely roaming camels living in and around the Thar Desert. The idea behind Camel Charisma is to save the camel by creating income for Rajasthan’s camel breeders. In recent decades, the number of camels has plummeted precipitously and unless added incentives are provided for camel herders, this animal is on its sure way to extinction.

    By choosing to camel milk, wool or paper, you are helping the Raika, keeping the rural community employed, the camels relevant and the Nature sustainable.
