Meet our artisans
Thalir-LEED is about connecting with skilled artisans who have been trained by "The New LEED", an NGO(Non-Govt Organization) for their continuous efforts in operating programs & initiatives in Chennai's slum neighbourhoods.It is defined by the untold stories of the people we interact with and work with over the course of 30 years in Thiruvalluvar Nagar, Perungudi, Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
Our target is particularly women who suffers immensely, single deprived TB affected mothers, & the struggling widows who are sole bread-earners, & differently abled. We value their exquisite craftsmanship & work hard to provide with the best handwoven products & other details. Their unseen experiences & dedication serve as sources of motivation for us.
Currently, we are making plastic wired baskets in different patterns, colours, and models. These products are made by women artisans from the slum areas, a depending on the complexity of the pattern, each basket can take up to 22-24 hours to complete. These wires are made of 100% recyclable LDPE (Low-Density Polyethylene) plastic which is strong, eco friendly and long-lasting. These colourful and vibrant baskets come in all shapes and sizes. Soon, we are planning & will get more handicrafts products made by our local artisans.
