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.
I know a couple of co-ops/orgs that might be a good start for you. Try Kakoli Das, from Red River at firstname.lastname@example.org and Pallavi Singh at email@example.com Tell them Ingrid sent you. Best of luck.
