The Maiwa Foundation encourages high quality traditional techniques and traditions. Its work consists in preserving existing work which may be disappearing and in helping groups regain the height of former skills. Increasingly Maiwa finds itself holding a wealth of knowledge in natural dyeing, weaving, embroidery, and blockprinting. This knowledge is much sought after by groups of artisans. The Maiwa Foundation supports our efforts to share this knowledge.
During the next number of posts we will be showing some of the photos taken to document our natural dye workshop held in Morocco in 2007.
More information about the natural-dye workshops and the Maiwa Foundation can be found on our website.
