ClothRoads was founded in 2011 by five women who had worked together as the Executive Team at Interweave Press. The website, www.clothroads.com, is a natural extension of the mission established in 2006, “Creating Opportunities to Support Indigenous Textile Artisans Worldwide”. Without robust markets textile artisans cannot sustain their families. ClothRoads.com is the primary sales venue, although they also hold trunk shows across the country, including exhibiting at textile conferences.
The ClothRoads website is more than just a place to shop. It’s a place to meet remarkable artisans, learn about different techniques, connect with other textile enthusiasts or just do a little armchair traveling along the cloth road. it is well worth a visit. The blog is varied, readable, and informative. Check it out.
