The Maker:

Sustainable Threads currently works with more than 10 artisan groups in India, with the goal of long term, deep partnerships. This striking product is hand-woven by an artisan cooperative in Assam, using bamboo frame looms. The co-op of indigenous women creates intricately woven pieces and incorporates traditional design elements and skills. This cooperative was formed as a project of a local non-governmental organization to tap into the existing skills of weavers and expand income opportunities for women. They made a commitment to work specifically with the poorest of the weavers; the group steadily grew, forming a trust employing over one-hundred local weavers.
