2023 Fellow

Founder and CEO, Bunko Junko

Bhavini Parikh

Bhavini Parikh is a remarkably committed social entrepreneur from India. She is a textile artist and fashion designer and the founder and creative director of Bunko Junko. Her flair for pursuing novel ideas while working on garment ornamentation and embroidery for established manufacturing brands lead to the addressing of community-oriented problems and the socio-economic growth of more than 1,000 women through employment opportunities. During her initial years in garment manufacturing, she nurtured the idea of upcycling waste fabrics from garments and home furnishings and décor and exhibited them. This passion of hers offered an open-ended platform for social innovation that was one of a kind. Bhavini aimed to revive the craftsmanship and talent that is unharnessed among tribal and rural women and relentlessly worked towards unleashing it. Over the years, her company took up several challenges and has successfully focused on converting the waste of fabrics and scrapes into commercially viable products, while exercising friendly upcycling and manufacturing methods. Her passion and hard work have led to the successful development of an unconventional business idea that aids in eradicating the social and environmental issues of waste fabrics and materials. Bhavini has proved that there are no impossibilities in the world if you have the fervor and zeal to pursue your goals!!
