Village Weaver Projects are a series of initiatives that create economic opportunities for artisans in rural locations. We help develop ranges of handicrafts that combine craftmanship and tradition with artistic creativity and market knowledge. Our team of weavers, dyers, designers and tailors transfer their skills to aid artisans make a better living from handicrafts. Currently this work takes place in 11 provinces. Combining a passion for these deep-rooted cultures and the handmade traditions with our business saavy we are able to create thriving village enterprises. In most cases we work with a government or NGO partner.
UNoDC or E.U. micro-projects or departments within government such as DTI (Department of Trade & Industry), or LWU (Lao Women’s Union), who help co-ordinate training programmes and study tours. Recently our team was hired to work with the LNTA (Lao National Tourism Adminstration) to complete a series of training programmes that will help them achieve their target goals of poverty reduction through sustainable tourism.
