WEFTshop is passionate about social justice and textiles. We believe creativity and collaboration have the power to transform lives.”

Our work brings together refugee and migrant artisans from Burma, a team of volunteers in Sydney, and hundreds of enthusiastic supporters and customers in Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Burma. We're all part of a process that lets ideas unfold as we bring traditional skills and contemporary design together. Our shared vision is for hundreds of artisans to build livelihoods beyond essential needs, develop the skills to preserve their techniques, train others, and celebrate the art and beauty of textiles with people around the world. Together we are a community that walks hand-in-hand with our artisans in their efforts to live with dignity and prosperity. Our stories of courage, kindness and determination shine through in each design.
