In July 2010, we launched a product line called Wisdom Crafts -- products without a price. Piloted in the Gramshree store in Ahmedabad, here is the description of the idea:
Wisdom Crafts are value-based products that are offered on a gift-economy basis -- where there are no prices and it is upto the buyers to reflect the value of each product and pay what they are inspired to offer.
By creating a ripple of beauty, wisdom, and gifting, we hope that each Wisdom Craft will contribute to a cultural shift from consumption to contribution, transaction to trust, isolation to community, & scarcity to abundance.
Following up on the success of the original experiment, we opened up another rack of Wisdom Crafts at Gandhi Ashram, in Feb 2010. We're grateful to all of you that support it, to serendipity that initiated the project, and to Meghna Agarwal who continues to guide the project's vision.
