Kumbaya is the brand name for machine-stitched ready-to-wear garments, home linen and accessories designed to market specifications and international trends. The unique significance of Kumbaya is that these products are made by women from one of the most remote, backward and poor regions of India. Women were encouraged to move away from agriculture-based activities and are trained with this new skill- garment fabrication, in a region with no prior marketable craft. Today over 1000 women in 70 villages have learned stitching. Kumbaya has been supported by Samaj Pragati Sahayog all these years. On the 24th of July 2015, Kumbaya Producer Company Limited was incorporated (KPCL), to hand over ownership, management and responsibility to those who participate and benefit from this economic activity.
