Seva Stray recently launched to sell unique Indian made accessories, home products, and dog products with the goal of helping stray dogs in India. Seva Stray works by combining giving and doing good into a business model that benefits local communities, empowers women, helps wildlife, and helps stray animals. Seva Stray brings customers beautiful, unique, ethically sourced, vegan products made in India. They work with Indian NGOs and other organizations that are empowering rural women, keeping the traditional handicrafts alive, and reducing poaching by providing alternative livelihoods. They produce beautiful handicrafts for Seva Stray, and 20% of every purchase goes to helping stray dogs in India. No country in the world has as many stray dogs as India. An estimated 35 million stray dogs live on the streets of India, and the problem is only getting worse. The money funds truly amazing organizations in India that are working hard on the following initiatives to improve the quality of life for stray dogs: Vaccination against rabies, distemper, parvo and other preventable, life-threatening diseases. Spay/neuter programs to reduce overpopulation. Critical treatments for injured and sick animals.
I got a few beautifully made items and I get so many compliments on them and I love to share where I got them and direct people to the site to help inform them, and maybe they will make a purchase to help the animals. I got this lovely boho messenger bag.
This cross-body messenger-style bag features horizontal multi-colored stripes and an embroidered elephant with small sequins. It easily fits a wallet, laptop, and any other essentials. The boho bag has a zipper closure to keep items inside secure. It also has an additional small zipper pocket on the outside for convenient access. Made in India.
I also got a gorgeous scarf and I wear it all the time as a wrap as well in the office at work because it can get a bit chilly sometimes. It's a hand block printed neck scarf with classic Indian mantras and Om on each shawl. Handmade in Varanasi, India, a hub for the ancient art of block printing. These beautiful artisan-made women scarves feature unique prints and make perfect scarves or shawls. Made of semi-sheer, soft and lightweight rayon material.
