Weaving brings needed income to Savu, and some weavers try to boost their earnings by cutting quality and increasing quantity. Threads of Life works with two Savunese weavers’ cooperatives to maintain the highest possible quality. Their museum-level work takes far longer to produce, but fetches far better prices. And by making fewer pieces, the villagers can sustainably manage dye resources, which in other areas are threatened by overproduction.
