I've been working with the very passionate Australian women who have pulled together the WEFT Shop, slowly and lovingly over the past 10 years. A handful of Australian women have joined forces to support the talents and traditional skills of Burmese women living as refugees in camps on the Thai-Burma border, up north in Chang Mai, as well as around Yangoon. WEFT works with small groups of women in these semi permanent situations, training them in modern design creation, using their traditional weaving techniques to produce textiles that are now available on the newly designed website.
So, place your order now, or sign up to host a party with your friends in the new year. I'm hoping to travel to Burma early in the new year to capture more of the stories behind the scenes, so stay tuned for more images of the women creating these beautiful textiles.
