100%OF OUR PROFITS ARE INVESTED FOR THE BENEFIT OF ARTISANS AND THEIR COMMUNITY.
Every purchase provides work and income for the artisans we work with. Income they can use to buy medicine, send their child to school, start a new small business, or invest in a tractor to work their fields.
Our impact does not stop there. 100% of our profits are reinvested into the development of the weaving industry in Sop Chem.
Upon Woven Textiles’ creation, we established this foundational principal of our business in unison with the artisans we support. 7-months later we empowered those very artisans, who know their community and trade best, to make the ultimate decision in how those profits should be invested. Working together, they determined our profits would be invested in a Microfinance Weaving Fund.
The fund is directly managed by local leaders, offers loans for weaving purposes only, and 100% of its interest is reinvested to ensure its sustainability.
Today, 100% of our profits are providing all 42 weavers in Sop Chem access to financing to undertake business activities such as growing or buying raw materials, taking their products to new markets, investing in new technologies, and beyond. The Weaving Fund is also creating new employment opportunities for the community by making financing accessible to those that do not yet weave but would like to start doing so.

Your purchase is going beyond the simple exchange of goods and towards the betterment of the artisans’ lives we prioritize in every aspect of our operations. Help us expand that impact.
