Weaving in the Time of Corona

Thank you for supporting our weavers at this time of Corona. Our weaving communities have been hit hard as all local markets are still shut. The problem has been further aggravated with complete drop in tourism which was another source of income as domestic and international tourists used to buy hand-woven textiles.

In partnership with PEKKA and OXFAM, we at TORAJAMELO launched WITTO Corona campaign in April 2020 and since then we have been sourcing signature hand-woven textiles especially from Adonara and Lemabta so that they have some source of income.

These signature pieces are not usually sold in markets and through this endeavour we are hoping to reach out to conscious consumers all across, create awareness about rural communities and we are confident they will to support our women weavers to survive this time of crisis by having a source of livelihood.

Together we can overcome this difficult time and at the same time make a positive impact on the lives of weavers while preserving our national heritage.
