Paaduks, are handcrafted footwear whose soles are made from used automobile tyres. While Paaduks, is an attempt at making eco-friendly footwear, there is more. While working on this initiative we realized the hardships our mochis (chappal makers) face. Residing in the slums of Thakkar Bappa Colony (located between the suburbs of Chembur and Kurla in Mumbai), and the Mochi Gali of Govandi, life is daily struggle for most of them.
Hence as a team we took a conscious decision to use profits from the sale of Paaduks for improving the living conditions of our mochis and provide them with access to better healthcare and education for their children.
