Artisan Spotlight: Meet Kasim Bhai

Yobel Market is honored to work with partners who are making a huge impact in the lives of individuals and their families. We love sharing the faces and the stories behind the products we curate because it serves as a beautiful reminder that each item in our shop is empowering a REAL person.
With Father's Day approaching, we wanted to share how our partners in India are providing economic opportunity and stability for a Father named Kasim:
"Meet Kasim Bhai: master bell crafter and long time Matr Boomie artisan partner⁣⁣.
Kasim works out of his home on a local kiln, manually cutting and hammering recycled iron and tin to shape into bells. He then coats the bells with powdered brass and copper before firing in kilns. ⁣

The partnership with Matr Boomie provides access to a larger international platform for Kasim to sell his bells, thus providing a sustainable income and economic stability. ⁣

We met up with Kasim on our most recent trip to India in April. We were happy to hear that he is now able to send his two boys to school to further their education"
 
This Father's Day, consider investing in an individuals' livelihood when shopping for your Dad. Shop our curated collection of ethical goods all empowering artisans like Kasim here.
