Things have been busy here at Women in Hebron! The women have been hard at work getting embroidery together for a couple large orders we have had, we have developed our newest Kuffiyeh Kritter, and we have been brainstorming ideas for new products we can offer.
We are currently working on paperwork for the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO) in hopes that our cooperative will certified as fair trade by the coming new year. We are excited about the new doors and partnerships that might be opened with this certification!
We had a wonderful visit from one of our partners from Germany, and enjoyed the few days that she could come and spend time with us at the cooperative center. We are excited for some of the new products that we have developed together!
Our director will be travelling extensively in the next few months, attending conferences and expos across the UK, Sweden, and Germany, and she will also be attending the annual WFTO conference in India this coming October. She will be bringing some of our products with her, and speaking about our unique cooperative.
