We’d like to draw your attention to something that’s drawing closer to us as the weeks fly by. The International Women’s day is celebrated on March 8 and as a tribute to the folk from Venus, we have come up with a few ideas that best represent the spirit and character that women all over the world embody.
1. Specially Crafted By Engrave:
As a part of our big Women’s Day initiative, we collaborated with 3 women designers to come up with a product each that they would like to receive as a gift and that they identified with on a personal level. Here’s what they had to say about their products:
a) “I need a cool storage box. Because office drawers are too mainstream.”
I have always wanted a storage box where I could keep my badges, pens, post-it notes and other knick-knacks and not lose them amidst the clutter of my desk drawers. Designing this box for Engrave was liberating in a way because now I know where to look for when I can’t find something.
b) “All working women need to stay updated with their health.”
I felt that working women tend to neglect their health. So I made this nutritional facts journal that was filled with useful yet interesting trivia about the everyday health and well-being of a woman. It is something that they could revisit every day and discover something new.
c) “I have always liked starting the day on a positive note.”
I like peppering my day and the environment around me with some positivity. And so making these chalkboard speech bubbles to pin up on your desk was a no-brainer for me.
2. Gifts Galore:
You can check out the plethora of products that we have for women on Engrave.
3. A Flea Market, For Women, Of Women, By Women:
We’d spoken about the flea market that we had done at Vodafone earlier. Extending that idea, we could set up a flea market exclusively for women where all the makers showcasing the products would also be women. What better way to make the day memorable than by letting the ladies let their hair down for a bit, stroll through the Engrave marketplace and shop for fancy ear rings, handmade soap or eco-friendly diaries made and showcased there exclusively by women makers.
If your curiosity is piqued and you want to know more, we are just a mail away.
P. S.: We did a comprehensive coverage of the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival 2016. As a part of that, here’s a feature on women’s empowerment featuring the women makers there: http://engrave.in/blog/the-kala-ghoda-handbook-womens-empowerment/
