Join Ten Thousand Villages Oak Park on October 15th from 2 pm to 4:30pm as they welcome the founder of Local Women’s Handicrafts, Nasreen Sheikh, for a trunk sale.
Local Women’s Handicrafts is a fair trade, eco-conscious collective of women artisans who create unique fashion and decor in Nepal. Their mission is to provide a living wage, and empower and educate artisans. They provide a safe space for women who have escaped abusive practices in the textile industry, and other hardships in their local communities. They believe a living wage is necessary to protect artisans and their creativity. Through creating fashion in a responsible way, their goal is to end forced labor and modern slavery.
Come meet Ms. Sheikh and learn more about her organization’s work and products.
