Artisan Partners

Textile artisanship is a lens through which we see the universal basics that connect us – the need to express our values, find meaning through storied motifs, and create beauty. To this end, we seek out practices that are globally dispersed and found in varying forms in specific local cultures.

Current Partners

Our first artisan partners were in India, Rajasthan – after Ren's 3000km cross-country road trip from Jaisalmer to Kerala we connected with several grassroots organisations and visited over 10 blockprinting workshops to understand more about the craft and community. It led us to Bagru and Sanganer, cultural home to blockprint, where artisan families have been practicing for more than four generations. Since then, we have expanded to include the textile craft of Ikat in Koyyalagudem, a village well known for this tie and dye craft for close to a century.

We’re always on the lookout for artisan communities to collaborate with, and are exploring the Philippines and Indonesia right now. If you know one in your part of the world, share them with our network.
