Hey,

I'm currently looking to find weavers in India who have great dye skills and can work with fine silks to create contemporary woven scarves??
If any one has any contacts, or knows of co-operatives, or fair trade weavers and communities I could contact, and to hopefully visit and work with, it would be amazing if you could get in touch!! to start a long a prosperus relationship with them for the future.

Get in touch - holly_pressdee@hotmail.com

Many thanks

Holly

Hello Holly,

I know a couple of co-ops/orgs that might be a good start for you. Try Kakoli Das, from Red River at kakoli.das@gmail.com and Pallavi Singh at pallavi@eyaas.com Tell them Ingrid sent you. Best of luck.

Ingrid
wow thank you for such a quick response.

Do you work with weavers as well, or what area of the industry?

Will email them now, thank you again!!

Holly
Hey holly, well you just lucked out, I was taking a break when I got the message ;-)

I do work with weavers in Cambodia, although I focus on wool and wool blends. Lots of skilled silk weavers in Cambodia too, from ikat to brocade.

If Kakoli or Pallavi can't help you, they should be able to point you in the right direction, they are both in India.
well thank you again, I have just emailed them, so fingers crossed.

That sounds exciting about working in cambodia. where abouts are you based? and what type of pieces are you weaving there?
