Our first project started in 2016, Project Dor works with a community of migrant women from Bihar, Jharkhand, and West Bengal to produce and sell handcrafted tie and dye products to revive this traditional Indian dying art form.  

The profit from the sales of these products, dedicated entirely to the upliftment of these women, has helped them attain a sustainable source of livelihood. Moving a step closer to our ambition of making Dor an independent, self-sustaining business and transforming our community of women into full-fledged entrepreneurs, we recently succeeded in getting the project registered as a legal partnership firm.


Project Dor makes neo-ethnic, versatile, and gender-neutral cotton and chanderi scarves, dupattas, and cotton T-shirts that aim to bring the apparel market’s attention to this dying art. The scarves and dupattas are highly customizable, offering over 30 designs, while the t-shirts are available in 6 standard designs.

Dor has also made considerable strides in being a sustainable brand by transforming its waste into handy products, making it a zero-waste fashion brand (all of its defective scarves get transformed into scrunchies). Project Dor has even eradicated plastic use by packaging its products with sustainable options like butter paper.

About our products


A sense of discipline and work ethic was generated among the workers. They now have a different perspective of life and have realised the importance of education, hygiene and sanitation.


We are a zero-waste brand as all our waste and defective products are used to make potli(s). Our butter paper packaging is an environment friendly alternative to the traditional plastic packaging.


The women have now overcome poverty, as well as patriarchy, to become skilled entrepreneurs. They're now able to contribute to their families, in more than the stereotypically conventional ways.


In 2016, Project Dor began with a heartfelt mission to uplift the often-overlooked spouses of snake charmers, later extending its reach to migrant women from Bihar, Jharkhand, and West Bengal in Delhi's JJ colony of Dwarka. These resilient women, facing poverty and exploitation, found solace and opportunity within Dor's embrace, eager to learn and grow. Beena Ji, Sushila Ji, Sunita Di, and Maya Di stood out for their dedication and willingness to embark on this journey. They symbolize the spirit of Dor—a journey not just of economic empowerment but of breaking patriarchal barriers and forging pathways to socio-economic independence. Today, Dor stands as more than a registered partnership firm; it's a testament to the resilience and solidarity of a community bound by shared dreams and unwavering determination.
