"You have two hands. One to help yourself, the second to help others" - Unknown
This week, in conjunction with our August Issue, we are inviting you into the world of Maissone to take a peak behind the scenes at the work we do, to ensure we are providing our loyal customers with the best hand sourced products, for themselves and the community.
In the search to offer our customers a bespoke rug making service, we came across a special community in Vietnam with skilled seagrass artisans.
From raw material processing to product design, we work with our talented artisans to provide contemporary designs through traditional methods.
Within the community skilled artisans feel empowered while preserving their traditional rug weaving methods, and training younger community members to maintain the tradition. The unique skill also provides artisans with a stable income for themselves and their families.
The artisans within the community are environmentally responsible, by effectively reducing land use space and using secondary materials to preserve natural raw materials.
We will be sure to share more upcoming and exciting adventures in the near future.
Until next time!
