Tisser moving ahead

Dear Friends

Wanted to post an update on Tisser, it is growing beyond expectation. Started with two products on hand with minimal investment, now it has above 75 products from multiple states. Last five months have been exciting, I have managed it with minimal support. Right from exploring , ordering , designing ,packaging, cataloging and marketing. It has also been an extraordinary learning experience for me.The orders continue to pour from all over the country and also internationally.

Tisser has got some exclusive distributors for local and exports which will reduce the risk of direct marketing and thus focus can be shifted on the products and their development only.I have been exploring most of the ideas suggested by the group members : Consultation with Africa Ignite is on ; Tisser has struck a partnership with Om Creations,the agency where differently abled make wonderful products; New products from other states have started coming in through the livelihood missions; training of SHG members near Mumbai and through the differently abled @ Anand niketan. On order from clients Tisser has started investing on it own products like -- weaving scarfs for men, which the weavers have not done earlier.

The initial investment has started rolling over for scaling up. Now Tisser has three catalogs - Clothing ; Artifacts ; Accessories. Interested members can like the facebook page of Tisser @https://www.facebook.com/TisserIndia ; In between Tisser shall be ready with its website by this month end with a new logo , Looking forward to share with the group. Tisser will launch its page this month: tisser.in (company page) & tisserindia.com (online wholesale).

The task of donating to the girl child cause will be done at the year end when the balance sheets are done and profit is determined. Until then all money goes in reinvesting for business promotions. One more by product can be mentioned , personally Tisser took me into a creative space , within my drab professional commitments in rural livelihood, it generated lot of enthusiasm and happiness in life.

Looking forward for inputs from the members as always on new products
