About The Makers: 

Textiles from other nations flood the developing world, virtually closing down clothes production in the recipient country. Many of the pieces are not even re-sellable as they are often dated, and have holes or buttons missing, so often the item has travelled hundreds of carbon miles just to end up in landfill. 

                               

2nd Story Goods established their Sewing Group in 2011. The women search the stalls in the local open air market for suitable fabric. They love purchasing from local business women in their own city. The banter and mom to mom conversations a big part of the exchange! The fabric is then washed and sun dried and made into new products by the 2nd Story Goods sewing group. 

When The group first started there was no electricity in the workshop so foot powered treadle sewing machines were brought in, the products that have been produced by this group never cease to amaze me.
