Bloom and Give uses age-old, handmade techniques from India to create contemporary textile designs for everyday life. They work with small co-ops that share a pursuit of excellence, quality, and a belief in fair wages.

Bloom and Give donates 50% of their profits to support girls education programs in India. Research shows that education is one of the most effective ways to combat poverty and fight gender inequality.

“WHEN A GIRL GOES TO SCHOOL, SHE EARNS MORE MONEY, HAS HEALTHIER CHILDREN, AND REINVESTS MORE IN HER FAMILY. AN EDUCATION CHANGES HER LIFE, AND THE LIVES OF GENERATIONS TO COME.”

FOUNDERS PARTHA AND MADHU - “WE’VE BEEN CLOSE FRIENDS FOR 20 YEARS. WE’VE TRAVELED TOGETHER, WORKED TOGETHER AND SHARED MANY ADVENTURES IN INDIA, WHERE WE WERE BOTH BORN. THROUGH BLOOM & GIVE, WE WANT TO SHOWCASE THE INCREDIBLE ARTISTRY AND POTENTIAL OF INDIA. BETWEEN US, WE HAVE THREE AMAZING DAUGHTERS. EACH DAY, WE WATCH THEM DEVELOP CONFIDENCE, LEARN NEW SKILLS AND BECOME SELF-RELIANT BY GOING TO SCHOOL. THEY VALIDATE OUR DEEP-ROOTED BELIEF THAT EDUCATION IS A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT FOR EVERY GIRL -- NO MATTER WHERE IN THE WORLD SHE LIVES.”
