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 artisans and their families, and a desire to enter the larger global commerce market. Marilyn Murphy will take you behind the scenes at different textile artisan groups worldwide and look at the various ways they are building toward sustainable growth. Learn More
