Dear Friends, As you all know we are going through a rough patch, infact not only us the whole community of craftspeople have been out of work for 3 months. We are helpless because, though we have skills, market is bearish. Even if there is little demand generated from conscious people like you, we don't have the logistics to support us. We have stocks at our disposal and we are trying to add value to them and to create products which will be functional and saleable. We want you to know that we will not give up. We will be agile and work even harder despite all odds. We will always maintain exemplary quality in whatever we do. Based on suggestions from many of you, we bring you this new product, a soft handwoven cotton pouch. These are all purpose storage pouches for your valuable silks or other delicate clothes. Cotton protects them and keeps them fresh and safe. You can customise them as per colour and dimension. We are taking wholesale orders on these pouches. Write to nivedita@womenweave.org. #womenartisans #womenweavers #womenempowerment #womenweave #covid19support #donateforcrafts.

Meanwhile in our deep rural pockets work continued as our artisans were working from home. Today was their payment day and look at how rural India will continue to keep its crafts alive no matter what. These brave men and women may look frail but they are extraordinary artisans doing their best to save their traditional skillsets even in these trying times. It is our humble effort to stand with them in a mission that's a common goal for many of us. Are you with us? If yes, please be a part of our challenge - #SupportLocalArtisans While craftspeople have been finding their own unique ways to respond to the COVID 19 crisis, Women Weave has been trying to raise awareness about the challenges India's artisans are facing and supporting them in whatever capacity we can.

This picture captures the essence of our work. Anisha is a weaver while Sahida is a spinner. The two wheels of our bicycle. We have always taken pride in how hard our women work at each step to come up with the finest textiles. There are so many steps before the yarns can be finally woven and each step is carried out by our women with utmost care and precision. Everyone works in tandem to deliver the final product to you. The picture depicts the struggle, perseverance and team work that has gone behind making the beautiful handspun and handwoven textiles that has been wrapped around Anisha and Sahida. The textile has been their bread and butter. It represents so much more than just a gorgeous piece of cloth. To help us provide for our women artisans, contribute to the following link donate.womenweave.org #womenweave #womenartisans #corona #saveourweavers #donateforcrafts #supporthandloom.
