The new year is round the corner. Time for many of us to punch the restart button. To evaluate the past and come up with plans to make the coming year a better one.
New resolutions, new practices, new goals to conquer.
At Rustic Motifs, this has been a happening year, we launched our new fully e-commerce enabled website. We opened our little store in Bangalore, we made new friends, who appreciated what our brand created. In short we had a lot to be happy and feel blessed about.
Looking back, we wondered if it was enough? It never is!
Did we touch as many lives, we wanted to? Did we fare well in our commitment towards making a difference to the lives of people, who need it?
Did we manage to give back even a miniscule percentage of the happiness we were blessed with?
It was while seeking answers to these questions, that our latest initiative was born.
We decided to tie up with NGOs who are into training the underprivileged, differently abled, financially backward people with vocational skills. Keeping in line with our ideology we partnered with NGOs which are into making a variety of handmade and environment friendly products.
The understanding, we act as their marketing and sales partner, helping their products reach wider more discerning and socially conscious audience.
We are in talks with more, so 2015 for us is going to be about reaching out to as many people as possible on both sides of the spectrum and use our expertise in promoting not just our own products but also the beautiful creations of these immensely talented people.
Winston Churchill once said, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
We believe, it takes very few people to change the World, sometimes, just a me and you are enough.
We request our readers, patrons, family and friends to make this festive season and the coming year more meaningful by opting for handmade and eco friendly products, for your homes and for gifting others. Pick something that is made with a lot of love and passion.
Products that carry the soul of its creators. Products, that not just bring joy to the one who receives them but also promise its less fortunate creator a reason to celebrate.
Let this season be different, a start, a journey towards a more conscious self.
Let this be truly a new year, both in meaning and spirit.
