Textile Travels

Since we launched our Textile Travels concept in 2018, the groups have been so fun and rewarding to organize. Read what participants have said here. Interested in joining us in the future? Let me know at mari@kakawdesigns.com

Textile Travel announcementCome join us on our very first of many #textiletravels, especially for Makers.  We will be visiting talented artisan groups in rural villages and learning their beautiful traditional techniques.  But more than that, we want to engage in creative interactions – so participants (Makers) will also be sharing their own experiences and ideas with different art forms.  Don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a Maker!  Even just from a consumer perspective, the direct feedback you can provide the artisan groups trying to be innovative will be incredibly valuable.
