Traditional Weaving – Weaving Futures
A Bali WISE Women’s Business Development Program
by ROLE Foundation
Small-scale artisans have historically played an essential role in Balinese society producing specialized cultural items such as textiles, baskets, and medicines using only natural ingredients and materials. These informal income activities were usually performed by women, to help support their families.
Today, these small enterprises represent a means of survival for those lacking other employment opportunities as they battle against fluctuating incomes, increasing costs of materials and tourism- driven inflation on staples. They also represent a healthy shift to sustainable industry growth for eco-friendly products and produce in Bali.
Fair trade principles and improving local economies for at-risk women.
