SUPPORTING WOMEN

We work directly with over 1,000 women in more than 35 groups on 12 Indonesian islands to help weavers maintain their culture and identity, and make a living doing so.

Building Livelihoods

Working directly with weavers empowers women to maintain their own enterprises without men’s interference, and puts money directly into their hands where it best ensures their households’ welfares.

Revitalizing Traditions

Our cultural and technical support revives techniques in danger of disappearing. This process moves weavers to great pride of ownership, and inspires the extraordinary quality of their work.

Conserving Dye Plant Ecologies

Dye plants are associated with rituals and mythology that perpetuate sustainable relationships with the land, and their continued use helps a community prioritize conservation.
