About the Maker:
Creative Women, a Vermont-based, women-owned company, has worked in partnership with textile studios in Ethiopia, Swaziland, Afghanistan, Senegal, Mali, Bolivia, and Peru. They import traditionally-inspired contemporary accessories and home textiles. More than just designing and selling textiles, Creative Women works to promote equitable trading practices and to support women’s economic independence. “I founded Creative Women because I love beautiful things; I want to make a real difference in women’s lives; and I’m fascinated by travel,” founder Ellen Dorsch states with a smile, as she talks about her business. “Creative Women allows me to do all three … by buying directly from women-owned businesses, by expanding markets for hand-woven textiles, and by paying fair prices for our goods.”
