Eugene Textile Center hosts Trunk Show
March 23, 2015 - March 24, 2015
Join ClothRoads and the Eugene Textile Center for a Trunk Show and Lecture
A ClothRoads Trunk Show is your gateway to a world of authentic textile culture.
From the rivers of India to the mountaintops of Peru, we go directly to the source to find textiles made by artisans using ancient natural dyeing methods, subtle and beautiful weaving techniques, spinning, printing, and much more.
Products featured at ClothRoads support artisan-made women cooperatives dedicated to creating a sustainable environment for the artists and their families.
When: Monday & Tuesday, March 23, 24, 2015 10:00 am – 5:30 pm
Global Artisans’ Weaving Cooperatives and Their Future Sustainability Monday, March 23, 2015 11:00-noon, Tuesday March 24, 2015 1:00 – 2:00pm. Sponsored by the Eugene Weavers Guild
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. Marilyn Murphy will take you behind the scenes at a number of organizations adding insights as to how they are preparing for the future.
