TARAGRAM aims to create sustainable livelihoods for the poor in rural India by providing them with the tools and opportunities to become entrepreneurs or key manufacturers. TARAGRAM also helps connect these artisans with traditional markets. Over 25 years ago, TARAGRAM pioneered the process of producing high-quality paper from waste. Since then, the effort is to fully respect the environment. We offer a business model that creates decent jobs at scale. We focus on some of the poorest areas of India across UP, MP and Bihar but we intend to assist any poor community across India and also other poor countries around the world. TARAGRAM supports sustainable job growth in large-scale rural areas through the development and promotion of world-class village-made, eco-friendly products.
Want to take sustainability to a profound level? Well, we have the solution for you. When you think about paper products or handmade paper products, you might wonder - how is it eco-friendly? Well, recycled paper is! Many handmade paper products are in the market, but not many recycled products. These items are crafted so intricately, with beautiful designs adorning them, that you might wonder how it is even possible. Do you want to know how is handmade paper made? Generally, a base pulp is taken to which different pigments and other materials are added. The materials can be different depending on what the maker wishes to add. Then, this pulp is put in the vat used to make paper. Then it is drained and pressed until it is left to dry off. This handmade paper can be used for various purposes, from handmade paper products to standard letters. Want to try out these unique items by yourself? Buy handmade paper products at iTokri.
