Pencil for change has an incredible, ethical and sustainable approach that is touching the lives of so many people, artisans and clients, alike. Love, love, love this company, the gorgeous unique creations which are superb quality and their dedication to both the weavers and the craft. Our Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra deities at Hindu Cultural Center of North Alabama in Harvest, Alabama will be wearing their beautiful sarees (bespoke, handwoven works of art) for the upcoming 2023 Ratha Yatra Festival.

Accolades and more to this approach to zero waste living. A conscious clothing brand at its creative best. We are proud owners of customized sweatshirts beautifully and sustainably made. Kudos to the team!
We had a customised sweatshirt made for our son depicting life in the sea. It was very tastefully done with seashells and other woven work. They put his initials too. The fabric was great. They also made sure it reached me in time.
Bought a wonderful passport clutch from Vari and it’s been almost 5 years using this product. No problem at all and it still looks like brand new. Vari products are amazing, made from authentic fibre with unique designs and all the efforts behind the scenes makes them very special products. Highly recommend Vari products.
I purchased a pair of Peacock Bellies shoes for my wife from pencil for change website. The shoes are a work of art, everything about it is fabulous – the fit, the material, the hand painted peacock, and even the box that it came in! It was very evident from the get go that they care about what produce – I received a call asking me to measure an existing shoe (not her feet because it was going to be a surprise birthday gift) so as to get it right … Om insisted for a video call to ensure that I measure it properly. No AI here … good old Human Interaction!! Keep up the good work!!
Wonderful product (Cooking & Serving bowl – Soap stone made). Better than expectation. Pure and natural. Top lid is very well fit. To make it in stone is awesome. Im using it for putting water that I drink with Tulasi leaves. It seems like the water become mountain water. Also using it as a bowl for eating food. The base is really good. Still have to try for cooking.. But it seems that it will pass the test nicely. If someone is looking for natural product with good finish then must go for it.. Not as heavy as expected..
We had a customised sweatshirt made with our initials written on it. The work was impeccable. The fabric was great. They made sure it reached me in London.
Pencil for change is creativity personified. Along with the exquisite products, the craftsmanship and the customer service is a benchmark in itself. Pencil for change deserves all the accolades and more.
Jay Jagannath! Pattnaik and his team are excellent to work with. I love their focus on sustainability and culture/tradition. They’re open to customization of their products which I very much appreciate. Delivery was fast and safe to Vancouver Island, Canada. Definitely recommended.
Jay Jagannath, very creative in sustainable lifestyle as a whole. Tips and guidance were very helpful. They delivered a quirky sustainable house that is remarkable.Their design and execution (Architecture and interior design) waste to wealth concept gets appreciation from everyone who comes to visit my house.

I got a reference about them from a friend of mine. They have interesting collections of sarees, bags, shoes and many more items. I must admit that the ikkat saree I bought from them is really exclusive. The saree I received was exactly the same(color and design) as what I saw on the site. Thanks pencilforchange for your products and prompt delivery!
Love the products. Unique, exclusive and Sustainable. Great quality and what I love is the connection to our roots – Odisha! If you want to flaunt being Indian, being Odia then please take the time to go through the range of options Pencialforchange has to offer. You would be impressed for sure.

With great determination, absolute dedication and a vision to make the World a better place, Mr. Ompriya Mohanty is fully committed to his mission to change the world, contributing in a positive way by reducing carbon footprint through Sustainable fashion, accessories and much more. He strives every day to make Vari and Pencil for Change, two companies which he is at the helm of, better organizations and do business with a clear Purpose in mind. What is incredibly impressive is the way he translates self-expression, creativity of children, tribal artisans who are educated through storytelling and the inspiration thus generated is converted to art, which then translates to fashion. Absolutely novel and impressive as a concept, isn’t it? Well, when you dive deeper into the product, try to understand the stories behind each handcrafted product, you will understand the uniqueness, specialty. I am a big fan of his art and even a bigger fan of his craft. While being understated in many ways, he is elegantly fashionable and proudly flaunts his creation as he believes in promoting users of his Brand, as his biggest Brand ambassadors. Well, I definitely like the products, wear them myself and I truly appreciate the quality, but most importantly love the reason why I buy the products. Every time it gives me a sense of satisfaction & joy to have supported the right cause. I also have some decorative art pieces at my home and I take pride in flaunting my roots, All the best Ompriya. Keep making Odisha and all of us Odiyas proud. Jai Jagannath!
Beautiful, Avant Garde products , exclusive and attention to details is amazing. I purchased their vertical garden set up which was delivered to me in London and was easy to setup. It feels great to do my own but for the environment all thanks for pencil for change. I have also purchased a pair of formal shoes from their waste-to-wealth series made from cruelty free vegetable tan leather and it feels and looks as exclusive as any top designer brand in market. Their Ikat fabric jacket which I purchased almost five years ago still looks and feels as new and I always get asked where did I purchase them from!
