What exactly is a Secret Pillow? It is a pillow that unfolds into a snuggly blanket. But that’s not the only secret — its production and sale empowers women in India. The story of Secret Pillows started five years ago in Kerala when founder of the social business, Fritha Mason, met a group of women all trained in stitching and ready to work, only to find out that there was no work. These mothers had no product to make and no market to sell it to.
Inspired, Fritha vowed to bring her favourite product to India and train the women how to make it. Now, thousands of Secret Pillows later and with more than 500 women trained, Fritha and her team have expanded the range of products to include fashion and homeware. All the products have four things in common — foldable, useful, purposeful and charming. See more at www.secretprojects.org.
