Mother Of Four, Vimla International’s Young Artisan, Weaves Her Financial-Independence Dreams

Remember, we shared with you the life story of the oldest employee of Vimla Rugs, Kesar amma, a few days ago? Vimla International is the factory from where our Interior Designer, Vikram, procured the exquisite hand-woven rugs for our new office, #IWBungalow!
