May 2009, Craft Revival Trust
This fashion show has been the culmination of all efforts and collaboration. The launching collection was shown and the project was presented. Both have received extremely positive feedback and project has been now placed on an international forum due to this exposure. Companies, industry associates and designers have offered to collaborate with the weavers and many people have been moved by the project. We are in touch with the interested individuals and companies. Feedback received has shown us
that our weavers now have the potential (with direction from the right creative source) to move beyond their village into the global textile and fashion market.UNESCO, Paris (September)
A one day conference was held in UNSECO in Paris, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of
