In August we created our first Atma workshop to raise money for those that can't afford an education in India.
Kanch had a vision about starting a Hong Kong chapter of a charity and felt that Atma (India) was a perfect fit for her so I am proud to say that Kanch is the founder of the Hong Kong division!
To kick off our fund raising we teamed up with Shoe Artisrty- Made In Hong Kong, along with Kanchan Couture, Atma, and wine sponsor Pietro Becoucini to educated people about Bespoke Shoes and the dying art that we are trying to revive. Owners Jeff and Kit of Shoe Artistry talked a little bit about how to make the shoes as well as getting the shoe master to demonstrate the stages and tricks he uses. We also all got a hands on approach and got to cut our own pieces of leather and draw on our lasts.
Everyone really enjoyed it and learnt something new which we're all really happy about and because it was so popular we've decided to go for round 2!
