Meet Ritu Moni, our training and production manager at Swahlee. Ritu Moni has been a part of Swahlee since the beginning. She’s been involved in the training of everyone on our team. Maybe because she is a mother, Ritu Moni is one of the best time managers and multi-taskers we know. All our dresses pass through her hands for multiple checks and final inspection. Soft spoken and always calm, but with a great laugh and sense of humor, Ritu Moni brings so much heart to our team. In today’s post, get to know Ritu Moni in her own words.
Each time I have visited the weaving unit where our fabric is hand woven, I am further amazed by how intricate and detailed the handloom process is. It’s surprising how many people are involved in the process to bring these beautifully crafted fabrics to us. The best person to share about the weaving process is Sankar Das, the Master Weaver at the fair trade company where we have sourced the fabric for Swahlee’s first collection. Recently I sat down for a phone call with Sankar to learn more about handloom fabrics.
