The Good Gift is the market-linking arm of a social enterprise ecosystem anchored by Indian Yards Foundation in The Nilgiris mountain range in southern India. With the mission to make gifting conscious, The Good Gift offers a range of products that are utilitarian, handmade by women from rural and indigenous tribal women using natural materials, offers traceability and comes eco-packaged in 100% biodegradable gift boxes. This range covers home & living, children and lifestyle applications that are relevant across a variety of occasions. The products are contemporary and a perfect gift for a purpose driven consumer.
Indian Yards Foundation was started to up-skill and enable women from rural & indigenous communities to the economic mainstream. They soon realized that this effort will be truly sustainable only if they empower these women towards their entrepreneurial journey and simultaneously build a strong market linkage. Thus the birth of The Good Gift. They were conscious that while they build this economic empowerment, they should also ensure that they are not burdening the planet. They, hence, took the path to building a conscious gifting value chain. Good for you, good for the artisan and good for the planet.
