#Meet Your Maker _ Part 1

This time we have chosen to introduce you to the brilliant artisans of Khara Kapas.


Meet Nasir Bhaiyya, OUR BADASS TAILOR. 


He is a 33-year-old Artisan behind the timeless pieces created at Khara Kapas. 


Every working morning, he cycles 4 km to the workshop to do what he loves- Sewing!


In his own words-

मैं जो भी करता हूं। मुझे बहुत पसंद है।



We asked him a few questions about his work with Khara Kapas

How long have you been sewing?

I started sewing when I was 13. It has been 20 long years but I have not regretted it once. While working in factories, my supervisors often found me diligent and hardworking. 

Three years ago I joined Khara Kapas, and I have been working here ever since.

 

What do you enjoy most about being part of the Khara Kapas team?

At Khara Kapas every day is eventful,  I work on something which gives me immense joy and I am proud of. 

 

What impact has being a tailor with Khara Kapas had on you and your family?

Personally, I am happy to be independent. I am able to contribute a major part to my family’s income. This means a lot to me. I feel a sense of gratitude for what I have and am able to do. I hope in the future I can scale up my impact even more.

 

Work highlight so far:

I take immense pride in what I create. I think there is nothing I can’t sew. 

 

When are you happiest?


Definitely during the chai break with the boys. 

 

Mr Nasir is our pride. And one of the most skilful and hardworking tailors of our team. He is an inspiration to everyone around him. The only way to create great things every day is with great people who love their jobs. We're an enthusiastic team of twenty hardworking masterminds who take great pride in creating the best.

Meet Ram Parvesh ji, a 34-year-old Artisan behind the brilliance at Khara Kapas.
He started sewing at the tender age of 16 and has been in the industry ever since.
He says joining Khara Kapas 6 years ago was a game changer. He started off as one our finest tailors and is now the Head Cutting Master!


He started off humbly back home in his village in U.P. but he quickly reached a stage where he owned his own small tailoring shop and was the best in his small community. Soon ambition made him come to the city and he paved his way to getting employed in a ‘manufacturing unit’. He worked in a line system in an export house for many years before he started working as a sampling tailor.
