Meaning & Purpose
Our weavers strive to do the best for their families and even in a world where household goods are typically thought to be a woman's task, this incredible male weaver shares his story. “Although society might not associate males with weaving, I am not embarrassed because I am providing for my wife and child instead of sitting around without work...I have the courage to take risks and try new things if it means creating a better life for my family. One day, I hope to send my child to school and continue to improve my home.”
