Porgai strongly believes in the following  :

The artisan is central to the craft and is respected

The artisan receives a fair share for their time and skill

By buying a Porgoi piece, you are :

Empowering the Lambadi women to earn their income

Reviving a dying traditional craft

Encouraging future generations to take pride in their culture
