Inspired by her grandmother in Kolkata, India, Harshita Lohia created Harshita Designs to share her heritage with the world through wearable art inspired by nature, Indian cultural symbols and more. Harshita Designs employs artisans living in impoverished communities in India, creating opportunities for them to combat income inequality.
