A blockchain based solution connecting this indigenos community to an international consumer interested in their traditional textile knowledge in a transparent and traceable way.
A first-to-market project contractually recognising

DESIGN MEETS CRAFT
The first global matching, collaboration, e-learning and sales platform to build an innovative eco system for the global handicraft market.
The objective of our proposal - Recontextualising Textile Craftsmanship: Cultural Sustainability in Fashion - is to prevent mindless textile and garment consumption in the EU and revive the heritage of European textile crafts by integrating traditional craftsmanship in the contemporary fashion development process and stimulate artisan-designer collaborations.
