Global Artisans’ Weaving Cooperatives and Their Future Sustainability
Artisan weaving cooperatives exist all over the world, each one with a similar mission of preserving cultural traditions and history, a need to establish a sustainable economic base for the weavers and their families, and a desire to enter into the larger global commerce market. ClothRoads’ Marilyn Murphy will take you behind the scenes at four different non-governmental organizations and look at how they are structured and preparing for the future.
