Shyam Das supports his wife and two children by making beautiful block-printed textiles – a skill in his family for three or more generations. After losing his parents to an earthquake in 2001, Shyam began working within the Fair Trade movement, and continued to develop his skill. Now he can honour the traditions of his parents while providing a better standard of living for his family.
