Kheta's mission focuses on women of the Shershahbadi sect in Kishanganj, Bihar to uplift them, both socially and financially through equipping them with educational tools and aiding them in operating their ventures of traditional handicrafts, the Kheta embroidery, made through long hours of weaving.
Through this social impact venture, we have envisioned replacing the menial tasks of rolling tobacco into sheets performed by these women with making their special handicrafts through mathematical genius and immense intricacy.
It will enable us to employ several women from the Shershahbadi community and henceforth, bring us closer to our mission of making these women of the minority community financially independent.
The array of designs offered by Kheta is uniquely crafted by careful observation of the environment and inspiration from natural landscapes. It resonates with ripples of water, materials used in building make-shift huts, flowers, dry fruits, leaves, among many more.
The types of motifs that can be weaved to make the Kheta are Biscuit, Sola Phool, Badaam, Char Phool, Kechuli, Nau Phool, Lathi bitt, Leheriya, Paan Patta/ Paan Phool, Charusiyani/Janjara Patti, Moe Patti/Leek Leher, Bhanga Phod, Soja, Kabootar Khop, Kotha/ Kotha Phool, Leek Phool, Ek Phool.
