Embroidered bracelet with multi-coloured stitching. Handmade in Sainte Luce, Madagascar by Tinaky.
Stitch Sainte Luce is a sustainable livelihoods programme training women embroiderers in south east Madagascar. The programme has been running for three years and is supported by a local NGO, SEED Madagascar. All of Stitch’s products are hand-embroidered on beautiful cotton with multi-coloured fabric, using designs that reflect the unique wildlife of the region. Over half of the women are now able to produce more than their entire monthly income just from the embroidery.
Stitch has expanded enormously due to the success of the previous phases. A greater number of women have been given the opportunity to train, and we now have an extraordinary range of brightly coloured, hand embroidered products.
Each item comes with an individualised card, featuring a picture of the woman that made it and information about their life.
Care info: hand wash with care using cold water, cool iron
