Who Are We?
We do things differently. Revolutionary? No. Necessary? Absolutely.
What does it mean to be a social enterprise? Or rather, how does one create an "ethical" business model? To create a successful business model itself (and by extension a successful business) is a bachelors, masters, and PHD worth of education on its own. But to create that business with the best interests of everyone along the supply chain at heart? Well, for us that part comes naturally.
Too often we see the exploitation of many for the gains of a few. Shawl Wallah set out to do something differently. Without trying to sound too cliche, we decided to be the change we wanted to see in the world.
Pulling from a background of international aid, refugee and asylum seeker work, and disaster management; the founder of Shawl Wallah identified a region in need, found a beautiful and misunderstood product, then built a business around supporting that industry.
Thus Shawl Wallah was born.
