'Ralli' or 'Rilli' (Sindhi: رلّي) are the traditional bedspreads and quilts handmade by women from remote villages of Sindh (Pakistan).

As these women have never attended any School, the designs are not documented but are held in the women's memories and passed down from mother to daughter.

Rillis are source of Livelihood for many families in Rural areas of Sindh who are plunged into abject poverty. These talented women financially support their families by selling the Rillis to local shop owners or Rilli dealers. It usually takes three to four weeks for a group of four women to completely make a Rilli.

Unfortunately, the prices that these women get are very low averaging $30 per Rilli for a week long hardship (making it approx. $8 per woman). However, the market price (in cities) for the same Rillis ranges between $150 to $500 per piece.

Indus-Crafts.com exhibits the Rillis directly owned by these women through online campaigning. Online trade of Rillis, due to higher degree of transparency involved, ensures that these God-gifted Artisans receive Fair Prices for their amazing ART and Hardwork. Financial Support through fair prices of their products will support them to develop their communities in terms of Health, Education and Poverty eradication.

    I believe that spending your money on others has a bigger return for you than spending it on yourself. If your money doesn't buy you happiness... you're definitely not spending it right!
