April 2012

In April 2012, I was invited to spend a week on the Brahmaputra islands to learn about the weaving centres run by the NGO Friendship Luxembourg. Following my stay, I was tasked with initiating and supervising the creation of designs that combined local skills and patterns with a more contemporary approach. Here are some examples of work resulting from this collaboration.
Friendship Luxembourg operates weaving centres and sewing and embroidery workshops in the Brahmaputra chars, providing vocational training and income to hundreds of women and adolescent girls, who also attend functional literacy courses.
