Enjoy the beauty and style of South East Asian artisans while supporting their communities
Life Interwoven breathes new life into the traditional skills and craft developed over generations in South East Asia. In doing so, they help create an entrepreneurial system of support for disadvantaged, local communities.
Working with local artisans and community members, Life Interwoven helps move them towards a fair, sustainable, livelihood. Artisans are ‘re-presented’ to new markets, who get to see and experience just how beautiful and relevant their products are, no matter where they live. Local community makers offer skills and artistry in return for a fair wage so that they can live a dignified life and send their children to school.
All of the products are both ethical and sustainable and range from gorgeous homewares to unique accessories and fashion.
While all of their items are impressive, it’s their newest range of ladies bags that are hogging the spotlight. And rightly so. Made from natural textiles, hand woven, and hand dyed using only botanical dyes, you can be sure they’re one-of-a-kind.
They partner with a number of artisan groups around South East Asia. Through Life Interwoven’s sale scheme, these people can increase their income, allowing them to provide for their families, and maintain their local communities. In 2016-17 alone, their donations have helped fund preschool education for a whole class of students.
