Weaving Futures Project Empower Women and Provides Vital Income Source
The “Weaving Futures” project, a natural dyes and traditional Balinese textiles social business model, provides skills and generates income opportunities for economically and educationally disadvantaged women in Bali. The project has been established by Role’s Eco-Friendly Social Business Development Programme and develops the weaving of naturally dyed organic cottons by local women on the Bukit Peninsula.
Preserving Bali’s cultural heritage
Through Weaving Futures, Role has developed micro-businesses for eco-friendly products and community profit-sharing cooperatives for organic niche-market products, thereby contributing to the growth in sustainable industries in Bali. Furthermore, Weaving Futures supports the preservation of Bali’s cultural heritage through the revival of traditional natural dye and weaving techniques.
