Local Weavings the social enterprise
Local Weavings is one of the social enterprises that R.O.L.E. Foundation created in order to maintain income during COVID-19. Its purpose is to sell the gorgeous woven products from R.O.L.E.’s program Weaving Futures.
The program Weaving Futures preserves traditional weaving in Bali and at the same time provides an income for local women. At this moment, the weavings are made by three women from Sawangan, Nusa Dua. They do both the weaving as the natural dyeing of the yarn.
