"Lively was founded in 2000 by the German Aurovilian Karin. She is working for the Auroville Village Action Trust since she joined Auroville in January 1998. Her aim was always to provide a bridge between Auroville and the bioregion as well as connecting people from all over the world to work together in an harmonious way."
Lively Boutique in cooperation with the Kolam Project promotes and sells the products that are designed and created by the women that take part in the project. Lively Boutique and the Kolam Project are located in Tamil Nadu, South India.
The Kolam Project was founded by a young illiterate woman (Rajaveni) from a poor family. She is the youngest of five sisters from the Sanjeevi Nagar Village in the State of Tamil Nadu. In a passionate attempt to understand the rich cultural and traditional heritage of the Kolam in Tamil Nadu she began her research into the history of this wonderful art form that adorns thresholds each morning at sunrise and early evening
What originally began as a research project later became an inspiration to empower the local village women by training them with tailoring and embroidery skills. The vision of keeping the tradition alive, empowering the local women so they can become financially independent therefore improving the quality of their life by providing them with skills and employment opportunities. .
