Beautiful Textiles with a Mission

Creative Women

From the website:
Creative Women, a Vermont-based, women-owned company, has worked in partnership with textile studios in Ethiopia, Swaziland, Afghanistan, Senegal, Mali, Bolivia, Peru, India and now Morocco. We import traditionally-inspired contemporary accessories and home textiles. More than just designing and selling textiles, Creative Women works to promote equitable trading practices and to support women’s economic independence.

Today, with friends I had the pleasure of meeting Creative Women founder Ellen Dorsch in her lovely Chace Mill/Winooski, Vermont space. Her passion and mission are commendable. These textiles are so beautiful and they are giving women an opportunity to take such pride in their craftsmanship and earn an income in a safe environment. Check out the website and read more of the story of this business/mission.
