Happee is handmade fashion. Centuries of stories and memories are stitched, embroidered, and printed in bags, scarves, shoes and wallets, incredible and full of color. Through millenary techniques like Tie-Die, leather with exotic embroidery and block printing, each piece is delicately hand-made and reflects the world of every craftsman. Surrounded by a simple life, unique stories and customs, around 4 villages in northern India are part of Happee's artisan groups and can show the world their unique, colorful and exuberant art.

 

Happee is fashion that connects. A close look at trends in the fashion world adds to the talent and craftsmanship of Indian rural artisans. The result is a powerful connection - between the present and the ancestor, the technique and the wisdom, the individual and the community - that offers exclusive, high quality products loaded with beauty, history and soul. And the best of it all is to make possible an unimaginable connection. When you purchase a piece by Happee you are automatically creating a bond that goes beyond the product and bets on the truth and talent of every craftsman and artisan.

 

Happe is fashion with purpose. Generating positive social impact is one of our principles of action. Crafts is the second pillar of the rural economy in India. For this reason, all the production is done by local rural artisans, valuing their knowledge, their skills and generating work and income for their families. Happee is a social enterprise, which believes in fashion made with meaning. The fashion that enchants, includes, embraces, rescues, develops, generates profit and opportunity. The one which is able to create a more equal and fair system, in which people and their well-being is what parades on the catwalks, showing us a new way of looking, buying and experiencing fashion.

 

The world today


Small artisans and farmers are generally in situation of vulnerability. Apart from the really low income, their work cycle is irregular or seasonal, meaning they do not have a fixed income, or stable financial situation. 


Produce to value

At Happee, we seek to help and empower people in two fronts: education and livelihood, aiming to educate children in need  and providing fair wages and livelihood to rural artisans from India , two crucial factors in breaking the cycle of poverty. 

 

Education

For each product sold, we donate 2USD to sponsor the education of HIV+ children of Rays NGO in Jaipur, India. Apart from this, we occasionally organize educational activities and donate school suppliers to the NGO. With time, we plan on expanding our social work to other countries as well, such as Brazil.

Livelihood

Putting the rural artisan at the center of our production has the decisive intention of offering decent work and income opportunities, valuing their art and their stories and consequently the Indian rural economy. Furthermore, taking this rural art to the catwalks and to the streets is a way to value and recognize its importance, in addition to making it accessible, popular and immortal.

All of our products are handmade or contain raw materials which are handmade by Indian artisans. This way, we can provide them a steady demand for their work and adequate and constant income. We also plan on starting to organize workshops and training sessions, in order to improve more and more their skills and quality of their work.

*The Brazilian sizes are already converted in the Portuguese version of the website.

*Our ballerinas fit the foot comfortably. Mojaris, however, are a type of shoe which are naturally a little tighter, as they adjust to the foot upon wearing.

*This chart may vary a little from other charts, as there is no international standard for shoe sizes.

*In case you still have any doubts regarding your size, send us an email at info@iamhappee.com, we will revert back ASAP. :)
