If you've ever ventured into the local vegetable markets then you've surely noticed the pervasiveness of the Thaili, those little colourful pouches that local women hold in their hands while bargaining the price of onions with a street vendor. Carrying money isn't the only use the Thaili, it can also be used to store your mobile phone, camera, keys and the like.

WSDO has the widest array of fabric that we've seen till date, and your course will begin as you get to take your pick among the various patterns that have been hand loomed by the women at WSDO. As dedicated as Shanti is to her craft, she is also a fun person to talk to so get your curious hat on and chat away as you first practice sewing on a newspaper. When you've completed the cutting and sewing of the main body of the pouch, you will move on to creating the thread that will be used to open and close the Thaili. This is simple process and here again you can express your creativity as you get to choose different colours of threads you would like to combine. For the finishing touch you'll have to assemble the thread and the pouch.

And voila! you are now ready to hit the local vegetable markets and bargain! We're hoping your Thaili will give you an edge ;)

A link to the exact pick up location and the detailed address will be sent to your account email id once the payment is complete.
