Project Feature: From Baskets to Handbags in Swaziland
From the clothes we wear to the pieces that decorate our homes, the items that adorn our lives are largely produced by hand, by women in homes and small workshops around the world.
Artisans number in the tens of millions, yet they are among the most exploited members of our global supply chains. And while artisan production is the 2nd largest employer of women in developing economies, these women are systematically overlooked and underserved.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Artisan production is an opportunity.
