Big Success at the Ajrakh Aucton

Maiwa raises 20,000 dollars at the April 16 auction.

We'll never let you know, but we were a little worried. Economic downturns, etc. etc. As it turns out the Maiwa audience and the greater community of textile enthusiasts pulled through with flying colours.

We received excellent bids on all items and the auction moved quickly. Twenty-nine double-sided ajrakhs, a silver necklace, three pieces of furniture, two mannequins completely outfitted in Maiwa clothes (with accessories) were sold. In addition the Maiwa store did a brisk business and all sales went directly to Project Dhamadka. We are also happy to note that individuals and groups made donations to the Maiwa Foundation in aid of this project.

We'd like to give a big thank-you to all who came and bid on pieces. We'd also like to thank the volunteers who made this event happen in such a glorious way. We couldn't have done it without you. 

If you missed this auction, not to worry, the excitement will happen again on May 9th at the Cates Hill Chapel on Bowen Island. The action starts mid-afternoon at 3:30 pm.
