Every human has an innate ability to create. We honor this artistry by encouraging newfound artists to create, as well as supporting communities who have been at their craft for generations.
It is through our diversity that we recognize our unity. As the world becomes more connected and globalized, it also becomes more homogenous. By sharing knowledge surrounding traditional craftsmanship, Thread Caravan works to honor and preserve unique heritage craft techniques and the people behind them.
Thread Caravan workshops serve as a bridge between cultures. Both teachers and students learn from one another, sharing similarities and differences in artistic skill, design preference, language, and cultural background.
Our trips show participants firsthand the effort that goes into making the goods they purchase, allowing them to cultivate an appreciation for the intricacies of the craft. This knowledge allows consumer values to shift from quantity to quality.
