MEET THE DESIGNER

Tazim Lal owner and jewelry designer thank you India

Thank You India (TYI) collections exemplify the classic, timeless style and the spirit of the founder, Tazim Lal- a professional interior designer.  Tazim’s trained eye for design ensures that our collections are diverse and sophisticated with a nod to both the North American and Indian styles.

 

 

 

 

 

  

OUR WORK

Through collaboration with manufacturers and artisans, and regular visits to their villages and cities in India, TYI ensures an exclusive selection of fashion-forward pieces which reflect the rich and varied cultural heritage of India. Equally important to TYI is the sustainable, long term impact on the communities in India, both ecologically and culturally.

 

MAKING AN IMPACT

Although our website looks like a retail website, we are a social enterprise. We maximize improvements via skills development/artisan market rather than maximizing profits.

A portion of every sale goes to charities that benefit women, children and/or their education. Each piece purchased by our customer is changing the lives of those who handcraft our beautiful products as well as those who are the recipients of our charitable contributions.

In our Cause It Matters line, we draw inspiration from the Cause or Charity, and we design jewelry or textile product uniquely crafted and ethically sourced, to raise funds for causes near and dear to your heart. These Causes are ones that matter to us; those that support women, children and education


We measure our success by working with credible partners who share in our values. Our products are ethically sourced and we purchase at fair value.  We empower our artisans to make their work marketable in North America and around the world thereby increasing the sustainability of their craft.
 
When you purchase from TYI you become a link in the social chain of giving back.
