THE STORY:

To provide employment and income to members of the comminity, mostly women, in Leonardville Namibia. We clean up the environment by collecting cocoons of the Gonometa Postiga which is seen as a threat to livestock and game. Animals feed upon thees dry cocoons and it results into severe rumen impaction or sometimes death. Because there is no other source of income in this community, we collect the cocoons and process it into a Wild natural silk from which we spun yarn and weave products by hand, like scarfs, shawls and bedthrows. Because the project is not self sustainable at this point in time, we want to raise money so that 52 women can still work at this factory and earn imcome to sustain their families
