Building The Fabric Of Society
Managing Creative Project and Teams, December 2013
Building The Fabric Of Society aims to develop a non-profit organization, whose purpose is to support underprivileged women and children in Dhaka, Bangladesh, by reusing waste fabric to make traditional crafts. Natalie Neumann and Robyn Asquini see an opportunity in reuse of waste textiles that could be acquired by local rag-pickers or poor citizens, and through the donations of excess material from garment factories.
Purpose of their project is threefold: to provide a platform for recycling waste fabric, to empower the citizens of Dhaka through fair compensation, and to preserve traditional Bangladeshi textile crafts. The resulting products should be sold globally through their foundation to raise awareness about textile waste, fair compensation, and Bangladeshi culture.
