Mission and organization
Kolours is a nonprofit social enterprise which aims at supporting physically challenged children and women, and orphan children in India.
Kolours uniqueness is found in its focus on eth[n]ic design: we support disadvantaged people, such as disabled, orphans and people in extreme poverty, through design. Kolours connects artists and designers with vocational training centers in India, where disadvantaged people can get the training and the designs to create ethic and ethnic products.
Kolours collaborates with designers of embroidered garmets, painters, jewelry and graphic designers from any corner of the world. The result are really global products, with a unique design, primarely of Italo-Indian design. The best of both worlds.
Kolours is a non-for-profit organization based in Switzerland since 2012, recognized as "ente di pubblica utilità" with branches in Italy (Kolours Italia ONLUS) and India.
