Supporting women – fabulous fabric

poorwomanseller

After 6 months working smack in the middle of  India I am back in the States & excited about my new project.

SUPPORTING WOMEN – NON TOXIC – 100% SUSTAINABLE PRACTICE – FABULOUS FABRICS. SEE WHERE YOUR MATERIAL IS MADE AND WHO MAKES THEM

The story: India is caste driven,  poverty and toxic manufacturing dominates the making of material and everyday life. I spent 6 months at a University in Madrya Pradesh. Madrya Pradesh is totally awesome culturally – think visually, saris, turbans, draoves of nomadic camel herders, dung houses, cows and more cows, fresh milk and a lot of Puja. But it is also corrupt in all areas of commerce and education.

So I am going to stop wingeing and take action.  I decided it was time for me to help women. Importing beautiful metres of fabric  for designers and companies that want to make a difference in the world.

In my spare time I spent many weeks visiting some amazing collectives that support the emplyment of women and making of fabric and crafts. Womenweave, Barefoot College and more.

I am an artist and designer, lover of women, culture and life!

I want to connect designers from all over the globe, with existing collectives who produce quality work, want to design and create their own products.
