TRUNKIN’ – An Initiative to support Artisans

Rich in skill but limited in resources, artisans and craftsmen of India were immediately impacted by the fallout from the global financial meltdown due to the Covid -19 pandemic. Consequently, inventory piled up while income dwindled and eventually dried up, placing the artisans and their families in a very precarious position. Thus, TRUNKIN’ was launched to help the artisans survive the pandemic through new wholesale and retail channels. It is thus that along with relieving them of their stock Trunkin’ also aims at finding ways and methods of giving back to them.
