Love Calcutta Arts saves victims of trafficking teaches them to make handcrafted stationery.

Tell Me More

Back in 2001 Peter and Leonora deVries rescued girls who had been forced to work in red light areas and taught them a new skill – how to make stunning stationery. Pick up from their collection of memo books, notebooks, diaries, cards and journals that Love Calcutta Arts has. Each item is unique – it’s made with a different sari, handcrafted and embroidered. And they can be customised according to the design you want. An added bonus – mostly recycled paper is used. From a single notebook to a collection of invitation cards, if you’re looking for intricate stationery that will stand out from the pile, you know where to order from. They also make other cloth items from saris like cushion covers and table mats which would add touch of upcycled whimsy to your living room.
