The process

                 

 

It has been a unique experience working and getting to know the team of women artisans we collaborate with. Our designs planned and envisioned in our studio come to life when the women fill in the embroideries. We work together on stitch techniques and colours. The artisans pass on their depth of knowledge amassed over generations to our young design team as we interpret our designs. A mutually enriching experience for both.

We work with groups in different communities, choosing a leader who will oversee and supervise the work. We have learned the work flows fluidly and time is needed as the women balance family responsibilities and our work.
