New Sisal Products Will Aid Brazilian Village
February 11, 2010 Leave a comment
The designs for our newest sisal collection were developed on hand looms by Merida designers in Fall River, MA. The weavers at the co-op in Brazil then creatively transformed the prototypes into machine woven patterns. Although the designs were created by Merida, they have allowed their Brazilian partner to sell these patterns in South America themselves. Keeping with Merida’s strategy to support the community through business, the co-op will pay Merida a small royalty on all sales they make of their patterns. This money will be used to create a fund to help support the many social and educational programs the co-op provides for its community.
These products are available for wall to wall installation or fabricated into area rugs with a variety of binding options.
