In 2023, C&A started a partnership with Indian social supplier Rangsutra, a social enterprise supporting gender equality, to develop a contemporary and qualitative collection of exclusive hand-embroidered pieces. To follow the aim of supporting equal rights along the supply chain and women’s empowerment, C&A chose Rangsutra as a social supplier for the collaboration, as Rangsutra is owned by artisans in India, most of whom are women.

It is a testament to the power of partnership and the impact it has on people’s lives—lives filled with talent, joy, and skilll,” highlights Giny Boer, CEO, C&A Europe.

History of Rangsutra 

Rangsutra Crafts India Ltd. (RCIL) was founded in 2006 and is a handmade crafts company owned by over 2,000 artisans who live and work in villages and small towns across India. Rangsutra’s purpose is to create sustainable livelihoods for highly skilled rural artisans by acting as a bridge between them and the market. Each product created follows a fair-trade process that allows the artisans to thrive in their working environment through equal pay, fair wages, a safe working environment, and skills training. The products are built on traditional hand embroidery skills. “Our vision is to continue creating opportunities for inclusive growth by acting as a bridge between artisans and markets, change and continuity, and tradition and modernity. The name Rangsutra is made up of two words to emphasise our craftmanship: Rang, which means colour, and Sutra, which stands for thread,”  explains Sumita Ghose, Founder, Rangsutra. 

C&A is proud to partner with Rangsutra to help them scale their business while giving customers across Europe the unique opportunity to get to know the rich tradition of Indian craftsmanship.
