Kullvi WHIMS is a self-help group ,formed by nine women artisans of Naggar village in Kullu Valley. The women are all traditional artisans, who learnt their craft practices of spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet from their family members and have mostly practiced their crafts for themselves, weaving pattus and blankets or knitting sweaters, mojiris and socks.

The Kullvi WHIMS model provides a fair income for the women artisans who belong to the SHG, empowers them by valuing and validating their skills and attempts to develop links and relationships with the herders. We are trying to develop a market for indigenous wool by working with people who appreciate the range and diversity of the material and respect the work and seasonal rhythms of the artisans.
