We belief in that women are agents of change and our platform connects women from different parts of the world to exchange their values by giving conscious female consumers the chance to connect, support and empower the women artisans through their purchase decisions. Long term, we’re building up a community of makers and consumers that will invent further sustainable solutions.
On an environmental level, our artisans work with one of the world’s most sustainable textile manufacturing techniques, the ancestral loom. In addition, we work so much as possible with local sourced materials that are dyed with natural processes. Thoughtful value-based production of durable, high-quality products means our stock is intentionally limited, but we retain the option to produce on-demand to avoid waste.
Our vision traces the cultural diversity of the local heritage of the communities we source from, resulting in unique designs made with both traditional and innovative processes. With respect for the development of products, practices, and organisational models based on indigenous traditions and techniques, we hope to sustain cultures and revitalise traditions. Finally, we balance market needs with the cultural heritage, while creating sustainable and ethical working relations.
The force behind our platform is the dynamic collaborative network. We specialise and develop relationships that complement and amplify their specific core expertise to leverage existing resources and create new value on both social and economic levels. It’s a way of working that harnesses the strengths of all who contribute and provide benefits in new and innovative ways.
We trace artisans, weavers and designers around the world with who we create sustainable and ethical work relations. The aim of our collaborations is to innovate all existing products and create new designs with local expertise and techniques.
