About Dhaari

The Dhaari cushion covers are made entirely in the prison- the fabric is a fruit of the prison loom and the labour is a great bunch of motivated prisoners of the Central Jails in Hyderabad, Telangana. This gives them a chance at building skills and satisfaction of earning an income, while under imprisonment.

Dhaari is Hindi for ‘line’ or ‘striations’. After all, Dhaari is but the imaginary line, that civilians think, differentiates them from the prisoners. Dhaari is that line you identify in every prisoner’s uniform. Dhaari is every single bar of the prison cell that denies opportunity to a man in remorse and guilt. Dhaari works with them, and for them. How better could we be christened?. So, when you buy a Dhaari cushion, you are investing in the skill building and income of a prisoner who deserves to see brighter days, inside and outside of prison.
