Social Potpourri makes it their own business to support and encourage
companies and individuals who are responsible towards the society in particular
and the earth in general. Color D Earth is our Business Potpourrian of the Week
because of that peculiar itch we have.
This company works with terracotta artisan groups from all
over India who handcraft this exquisite jewelry. The result of this painstaking
effort and meaningful collaboration finds a place in Color D Earth's retail

Social Potpourri likes to agree with that even more because
it supports the artisans around India whose bread and butter lie in the art
form. It is because of ventures such as Color D Earth that they not only
survive but live with hope.
