Woven by hand


Weavers from 80 families in Nizag, central Ecuador, use wool  and sisal -- the main local resource -- to fashion clothes and accessories. Members of the local women’s artisan association have received training in product design and presentation as well as business administration to help them better market their goods.


The MDG-F-supported project has helped strengthen these artisans’ identity and recover ancient knowledge about the cultivation, processing and design of sisal handicrafts.
