We have a proven track record of setting up several self-sustaining craft clusters across the country. Over the years, we have fine tuned our strategies to develop foolproof methodology that helps us budget the time and cost required to ensure communities are able to reap the benefits of their efforts in as little time as possible.
Our process –
- Map & document local raw materials that can be used to make hand made products
- Map & document existing skill sets and traditional knowledge bases that can be enhanced to develop new product designs
- Document the micro-processes employed in producing traditional crafts.
- Identify urban market requirements for hand made products using natural materials
- Develop pricing models to suit affordability and large scale production
- Design and develop Up-skilling training workshops
- Plan and recruit highly skilled product designers and project execution teams to deliver trainings
- Engage in long term trainings in product design and development, project and time management, quality assurance, financial bookkeeping and taxation
- Training in catalogue development – Documenting product specifications and developing product photos for bulk trade proposals.
- Execute mock production runs to ensure adherence to quality and time commitments.
- Minimise product rejections by identifying quality control checkpoints to ensure excellent workmanship during respective production phases.
- Develop reward schemes to encourage overall community development
- Assisting in developing independent market linkages thereby allowing KADAM to exit by transitioning the project successfully to the skilled artisan’s.
