This is a site for textile enthusiasts, designers, fiber artists, sewers and quilters who value the look and feel of hand-woven and intricate hand-dyed fabrics and textiles direct from the hand of the artisans. Supporting artisan cooperatives empowers women to create better lives for their families, to send their kids to school, and to provide the basics of life. Their textile creations are maintaining their cultural heritage while enriching our lives with the beauty of their work.
