The brand THE KOLHAPUR Co. was established in support of Kolhapur chappal artisans based out of a village in the Northern part of Karnataka called Madbhavi in Athani, Belgaum. This century-old traditional craft faced a grim situation when covid-19 disrupted the livelihoods of these artisans. Considering this scenario Micro Entrepreneurship Program of Deshpande Foundation collectivized the artisans to form a producer company in which 200 artisans are members.
