Have you ever wondered who labels and folds all your Eternal Creation clothes so neatly? Meet Jagdish, our wonderful 'packing man'.
Jagdish is a local Gaddi from Khanyara (a small village about 10 minutes away from Dharamsala). He is one of our longest serving employees, and prior to working with us he worked as a stone cutter (on building sites), but was unable to support his family on the meagre wages.
Initially Jagdish's hands were so rough and calloused that the fabric would catch on his fingers - especially the silk - and he had a terrible time trying to fold anything! He has since mastered the tricky art of folding to perfection, and has saved enough to build his own house.
