Woven Homewares

For over 20 years, this project in the mountains of Swaziland has grown and prospered, and currently over 700 women in the area are making an income weaving these beautiful homewares.

The aim is to create innovative contemporary designs using traditional hand skills and local sustainable materials.

Swazi women harvest grass from the mountains, which is then dried and woven using traditional techniques.

Many of these women are mothers and grandmothers, so being able to work from home enables them to maintain a traditional lifestyle while also caring for their own children as well as many vulnerable and orphaned children within their community.
