Khushiyon ki Dor: Not just a tagline

Updated: Dec 22, 2021

Project Dor, team Enactus Kirori Mal’s first project, takes the initiative of addressing the much neglected environmental impact caused by the production and disposal of fast fashion, by introducing indigenous, zero-waste, and sustainable fashion products. The tagline of the project, “Khushion ki Dor” means ‘A thread that is making lives better and happier’ for the ones that are running the project and also for the ones that are buying its products. The female migrant workers from Bihar and Jharkhand are currently running the project under the supervision of Enactus Kirori Mal. These ladies used to live on railway tracks before the government provided houses and Enactus KMC gave them this entrepreneurial opportunity. “Through Enactus, our economic and health conditions have improved. Since the inception of Dor, we have learned the intricacies of tie and dye, which is now a part of our personalities” says Sushila Ji, one of the community members who is running the project. Dor, meaning thread, is mindful of clothing and constantly works for ways in which it can be made better. Even the defective products are reused to make small cloth bags, thereby making the project a zero waste and sustainable brand. Starting with manufacturing scarves, the product range now also includes cushion covers and mini cloth bags or potlis. “At Enactus Kirori Mal,” says Ritika Jajoo, “We believe that sustainability should be universal in every step of our products for which we are working every day” In conversation with Ritika Jajoo, 3rd year – Political Science Prisident, Enactus Kirori Mal
