I hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this difficult time. In light of the current developments around COVID-19, I wanted to take a moment and share the steps we’re taking to keep our community as safe as possible.
Keeping our artisans safe
- The scariest thing during a downturn is that brands stop producing - in effect leaving the artisans out of a job and more vulnerable than ever to the crisis.
To us, this is not an option. At the moment, all our more than 100 artisans are working from home in their villages with access to living wages.
- Turning our Rumah SukkhaCitta as a community safe-house. We've stocked up on basic needs such as rice for free, so our artisans and their families don't have to leave the village too often.
We're here for you
- Our online boutique remains open - and we are still shipping your orders with all the necessary precautions.
Following the recommendations of WHO, we have strong procedures in place to make sure our shipments to you are safe. This involves providing masks, and disinfecting the studio before and after shipments are being prepared and of course only allowing healthy team members to make shipments. Please contact us, if you'd like to learn more.
Doing our part in flattening the curve
- Our small yet mighty team has been working from home, at full pay. We Skype everyday to make days less lonely :)
Your support matters
- We exist to change lives - and I'm personally doing all the reading I can to navigate us through this. However, I would be lying is I say I'm not worried.
As a tiny, self-funded social enterprise, we don't have investors who will pour money during this difficult times. Now more than ever, your purchases keep our operations running.
With every purchase, you enable us to keep supporting our artisans.
In the meantime, we hope to shed some positivity and comfort through our email and social media as we live this new and changing reality. Don’t hesitate to reach out - let us know how we can support you through this or if you have any questions or concerns. We’re here for you! Let’s stay safe and connected.
We'll get through this together,
Denica and the SukkhaCitta team
