Our cofounder, Prarthana, is passionate about solving real-world problems with good design. Dzukou has been her most memorable adventure so far. In this interview with EastMojo, Prarthana discusses how we work with rural craft communities in North East India and blend the ethnic and the traditional with innovative design to produce premium goods.
Our handmade products are not just eco-friendly, but they are made by communities using materials from their surroundings and using simple tools and techniques. These making traditions have been passed on from generation to generation in these communities. But these communities need innovation with their materials to make products that capture the western markets.
At Dzukou, our efforts are directed towards working with these communities in bringing such material innovation.
