This design called Shakti – which in Bangla means strength, speaks indeed to the strength these young women show in overcoming their past. It’s inspiring! “When we sew we don’t think about our old lives, we’re happy!” A much brighter future awaits as they earn well, save and build strong dreams.
The lines of running stitch are inspired by the traditional kantha of Bangladesh. The family blankets made of well-worn saris, are quilted with cotton threads in lines of running stitch.
