The Association of Women Tie-Dyers Project

Our artisans are provided with skills training and business funding through the Association of Women Tie-Dyers Project. To leverage assets and resources our women are organized into associations working together to improve their livelihoods and communities. We help women artisans generate income to support themselves and their families while equipping them with the skills and knowledge necessary to own and operate sustainable businesses for the future. We also advocate for better wages and safer working conditions for our women artisans.

The Handmade Process 


The tie-dye process dates back centuries and has been passed down from generation to generation. All of our products are handcrafted using both traditional and new art forms. Each product is a reflection of the culture, time, talent and skill of our women artisans. Through our partnerships with retailers, we ensure quality and socially conscious products to customers matched only by the aesthetic and beautiful design.
