**OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE INDONESIAN ARTISANS COMMUNITIES**
Over the past 10 years, I have devoted part of my spare time, campaigning to preserve Indonesian traditional textiles culture and tradition. I believe that encouraging the continuous production of traditional handmade textiles will help empower women and strengthen the global economy. Appreciating slow textiles more will help reduce the production of unnecessary fast textiles and fast fashion, hence saving the planet from further climate destruction.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of this cloth will go to support grassroots projects by Connect Indonesia, a small community-based charity that implements grassroots projects working directly to benefit the artisans and their family. Connect Indonesia distribute reading glasses to senior artisans around the archipelago to help them produce better quality textiles.
