Paces crafts: A sustainable knitting- crochetting and weaving workshop

With Paces Crafts we aim to provide sustainable employment for local weaving villages and poor women living in the rural surroundings of Ranchi.

With Paces crafts we aim to provide sustainable employment for local weaving villages and poor women living in the city of Ranchi. We believe that by offering an honest income to the young women they will less probably emigrate to the big cities in search of a better destiny where they can end up in situations of abuse or extreme poverty.  All profits of this new venture will be used to finance the Jaan Foundation in their support towards vulnerable children.

After 6 months of research we decided Jaan Foundation will offer crochet & hand knitting, weaving, blockprinting and embroidery skills. Local people are being trained by masterweavers and masterknitters. The first samples are being made in cooperation with our very first clients Jaan Foundation will be using high quality materials like organic cotton, peace silk, 100% merino wool, cashmere and pashmina blends. Suppliers are being tested on compliance and service.

Paces crafts will produce a wide variety of products – all made to order – being headwear, mittens, scarves, sweaters, plaids, poncho’s, gadgets, decoration objects, …

Paces crafts will also produce woven and blockprinted fabrics: scarves, plaids, table wear, other confection purposes.
