“Now we have about 50 women
in the project who weave and about
25 who spin the yarn. The cotton comes
from Madhya Pradesh, it’s grown,
spun and dyed here. It is as green
as we could make it.”
–Sally Holkar, Women Weave

“The people have a wide range of
learning difficulties, some have greater
difficulties than others but they are all
taught to weave.”
–Sofia Agerberth, Teixidors

“The weavings represent the
country side of our people –
the flowing rivers and streams,
the lightening and storms
of the mountain skies of Laos.”
–Kommaly Chanthavong, Mulberries
